Tim Thomas Earns ‘Cambrioleur’ Player of Game Award for His Role in Stealing Win for Bruins


Feel like learning a new word? "Cambrioleur" is French for "burglar," and that's pretty much the role Tim Thomas played on Monday night against the Canadiens.

Thomas made 33 saves, each more spectacular than the last, and the Bruins stole a win from the Canadiens. The Habs out-shot the Bruins by 15 but that didn't stop Thomas and the rest of the B's from shutting out their second consecutive opponent.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette broke out the English-to-French dictionary to celebrate this one as the Bruins continue their assault on the NHL standings with their ninth win in a row.
