Video: Save of the year by Thomas?
December, 5, 2010
The Bruins might have lost to the Leafs last night in a shootout, but it certainly wasn't Tim Thomas' fault. Thomas kept the Bruins in the game, making 38 stops, none more spectacular that his glove save (shown in the video above) on Francois Beauchemin in OT.
More on Thomas from the recap of Saturday's game:
"There's nothing else I could have done," Beauchemin said. "I looked up, it was an empty net and I shot it as hard as I could. His glove came up and saved it."
Thomas was so good he even got postgame praise from Toronto coach Ron Wilson.
"If not for Timmy Thomas there's certainly no way the game goes even to overtime or to a shootout, because he made some unbelievable saves," Wilson said. "He was huge."
