from James Duthie of TSN,
James Duthie: You gave up two goals Wednesday night. That must be pretty embarrassing for a guy who had a .50 goals-against average going in. I’m frankly surprised Claude Julien didn’t pull you after the second one.
Tim Thomas: (laughs) I think the coach didn’t know what to do. I’d hadn’t put him in that situation this year.
JD: Be honest. Did it actually cross your mind when they scored that giving up two goals was going to balloon your save percentage and GAA?
TT: It did for a second, but that’s a terrible way to think. You start the season just thinking about the wins, but when you have the kind of streak I had, you can’t help but think about the numbers a little bit. So for a split second, yeah. But then reality set in. It was 4-2 with more than 10 minutes left, and I had to get my head straight and remember the priority, to get the win.
