Claude Julien Doesn’t Expect Tim Thomas to ‘Lose Sleep’ Over Roberto Luongo’s Comments


Tim Thomas has been fantastic all season, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he's playing well in the Stanley Cup Final. But despite allowing only six goals in five games, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo was still critical of Thomas' style following a Game 5 Vancouver win.

Luongo said that the goal Thomas allowed in Game 5 — which was the only goal of the game — would have been an easy save for him because he stays in the crease. It seemed like a bit of a jab by Luongo, who also said that he hasn't heard Thomas say anything nice about him.

When asked if Thomas might use Luongo's comments as motivation going forward, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said that it probably won't make a difference. He said that Thomas probably won't lose much sleep over the matter, and asked how many goals Luongo has let in this series.
