Bruins Game 52 Recap: TIM THOMAS SMASH

Hey, way to prove me right in calling you a dick Timmy. Tonight Tim Thomas surrendered six goals to a suddenly surging Bruin offense and retaliated by hitting Carl Soderberg in the head with his stick and making a crack about preferring to watch the State of the Union Address afterwards. Always a wit, that Tim Thomas. Anyway, the Bruins scored six goals on their ex-netminder and never trailed or held a lead that was less than two after the first period. Milan Lucic scored two of the first three, and received a hat shower when the audience mistakenly assumed that he’d been responsible for all three after the second passed him on its way to the net from Chara’s stick.

The only hope of a Panther comeback fizzled out when the Bruins scored their fifth of the night eight minutes into the third period. The rest of the game was pretty much a cakewalk for Boston until the sixth puck went into Thomas’ net and he decided to take out his rage by decapitating Soderberg. He received a high-sticking penalty for his tantrum and will probably at least be considered for a suspension, so no good deed is going to go unpunished. A bad overall effort by the Panthers who look to be awful and directionless this year while the Bruins put another easy win on the board and crushed a team they by all means should have. Next up the B’s take on the Canadiens on Thursday, who happen to be on a bit of a downward spiral after losing four of their last five. B’s/Habs games are always fun and drama-filled, so make sure to tune in!
