Claude Julien sees the difference in Tim Thomas’ game, how the Bruins’ goalie is attacking more, challenging shooters.
“He’s played more like he did a couple of years ago,” the Bruins’ coach said.
Thomas feels the difference in his game because the nagging hip injury that bothered him last season is gone and he’s free to flail and flop around in his crease in the way only he can.
“That’s my style,” the goalie quipped.
And with the puck requiring the world’s greatest GPS to find the back of the Bruins’ net, their opponents have learned that the old goalie, 36 and coming off a forgettable 2009-10 season, still has plenty of life left in his game, enough to create the most fabulous of goalie controversies.
