Tim Thomas Continues to Add to His Vezina-Worthy Season Throughout Playoffs


The Bruins will be giving Tim Thomas one big pat on the back if they win Game 2 in Philadelphia.

The B's netminder was contested on several occasions in the third period, including a few truly incredible saves to keep the Flyers away from victory. As the Bruins head deeper into the playoffs, Thomas only further proves that he deserves another Vezina Trophy this season.

The Flyers peppered Thomas with 22 shots in the third period, and his performance kept the Bruins alive to head into overtime. The Bruins still have plenty of work to do in overtime, but a win in Game 2 would be a huge detriment to the Flyers as the series travels back to Boston.
