Boston Bruins goaltender was involved in both the offensive and defensive sides of the ice last night. In addition to a 35-save shutout, Thomas racked up his second assist as a Bruin. Thomas passed the puck from the crease to Michael Ryder at the blue line, who ricoched a shot off of a defenseman to give the Bruins their fourth goal of the night. “A goalie’s assists aren’t really important. If I get 98 more maybe there’s a bonus in my contract,” Tomas told the AP’s Jimmy Golen. “If (only) they could get me six goals every game. We set the bar high.”
Ryder would rack up another goal, along with Matt Hunwick and Byron Bitz. Chuck Kobasew also had two goals on the night, including one of the B’s two power play goals. After a dismal mid-February, the Bruins have bounced back to score six goals in their last two games. The Bruins face off against Washington at home on Saturday afternoon.
