VIDEO: Tim Thomas' Amazing Save, Nathan Horton's Game-Winning Goal

It's tough to say a game that needed over 90 minutes of hockey and multiple overtimes came down to just two plays. But, that was essentially the case Saturday night in Game 5 of the NHL Playoffs series between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins at the TD Garden. The Bruins prevailed, in the second overtime, 2-1, when Nathan Horton, on the doorstep of the goal, buried a rebound in the back of the net.

But the only reason Horton and the Bruins even had a chance to win was thanks to an amazing save made by Tim Thomas at the 5:35 mark of the second OT, turning away a Brian Gionta shot from point-blank range on a 2-on-1 Montreal break.

"My thought was just trying to get it on the net and get it over him," Gionta said. "He moves well side to side and he just read it."
