BOSTON (CBS) – Asking Bruins goalie Tim Thomas about his playing time as the season winds down is like asking the Bruins about their power-play.
It is getting old.
With just seven games remaining this season, Thomas does not know how many of them he will be between the pipes. He is not even thinking about it to be honest.
“There’s nothing in my head, it’s completely blank,” Thomas joked with the media on Monday. “You should see it in there. It’s scary sometimes.”
Tim Thomas Talks End Of Season, Playoffs
Thomas is having another Vezina-esq season with a 32 wins, a 2.00 goals against average and eight shutouts. He did not see the ice much in the playoffs last season due to a hip injury and the emergence of Tuukka Rask, but says the six-year veteran feels healthy and is ready to go.
“I feel pretty good,” Thomas said. “Usually you can tell how I’m feeling physically because you’re going to see it on the ice and see it in my play. I’ve been feeling pretty good and I think it shows in my movement.”
That play has been on par for the rest of the season as of late. In his last three outings, Thomas is 3-0, allowing just two goals, stopping 81 of the 83 shots that have come his way.
