Holy Tim Thomas

Tim Thomas was awesome last night against the Capitals. He stopped 38 of 39 shots, 13 in each period including multiple cross crease saves (as seen above). He is now 4-0, with a 0.978 save percentage and 0.75 GAA!! And that is against some the League’s elite; Phoenix, New Jersey and Washington twice.

I think it’s safe to say that he has stolen the starting job back from Tuukka Rask.

Thomas Saves the Day

Tim Thomas was absolutely clutch tonight. On paper he only made 24 saves, but many of them were either point blank or on a breakaway. Not to mention the saves in the shootout. Rask is now DTD with an injury, so I hope Timmy wins back the job.

Luca Caputi didn’t look out of place tonight either, and he pretty manhandled his way to setting up the Leafs tying goal. Regardless, it was another shootout loss for Toronto and another hammer in the coffin that has them sitting 29th in the league, and was against the team that will benefit most from that position.
