Bruins Vs. Canucks: Tim Thomas Knows 'How To Play Goalie'

Tim Thomas has been a goalie for a long time - that being the case, he doesn't need any advice on how to play the position, especially since the 37-year-old netminder has made it to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.

"I have a pretty good idea how to play goalie," Thomas said at the beginning of the press conference. "I'm not going to take advice or suggestions at this time. I'm just going to keep playing the way I have." (via WEEI)

Thomas, who gave up the game-winning goal to the Vancouver Canucks' Alexandre Burrows 11 seconds into Game 2 on Saturday night, had 30 saves on 33 shots in the game and now has 63 saves in the series.

This postseason, Thomas has recorded 623 saves on 670 shots (47 goals allowed) in 1,244 minutes in 20 games, all of which he has started. Thomas was 35-11-9 with a .938 save percentage and a goals against average of 2.00 during the regular season.
