Bruins Vs. Lightning, Game 7: Tim Thomas: 'This Is A Great Moment'

Tim Thomas has been at the forefront of the Boston Bruins' postseason surge, recording 24 saves and his second shutout of the 2011 playoffs (third career in the postseason) in his latest gem against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Friday night at TD Garden.

"This is a great moment," Thomas said. "There's no doubt about it. When's the last time Boston's been to the Stanley Cup finals? Twenty-one years. It's been a long time for Boston, it's been a long journey for me to get here. Now, you want to take advantage of this opportunity. There's more work to be done. Unfortunately, that's the way it is. You can't ever be too happy for too long until you're the last man standing." (via WEEI)

Thomas, who has 560 saves on 603 shots (43 GA, 2.29 GAA) this postseason, will look to lead the Bruins to a Game 1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks in the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals opener on Wednesday evening at 8:00 p.m. EDT.
