Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara Both Play Big Roles in Each Other’s Dominance at Respective Positions


Tim Thomas is one of the best goalies in the NHL right now. Zdeno Chara is one of the best defensemen in the league. Those opinions are pretty much undeniable, as is the fact that both make the other one better.

That's something that is personified by the fact that both are in Las Vegas for the NHL awards on Wednesday night. NESN.com's Douglas Flynn spoke with Naoko Funayama about the potentially award-winning seasons for both Thomas and Chara and said it is certainly no coincidence that both are up for recognition as the best at their respective positions.

To hear all of what he had to say, see the video above.
