The Boston Bruins (7-2) are riding the pads of Tim Thomas to a red-hot start in 2010-11 as the B’s look to beat the Washington Capitals for the third time this season.
Thomas stuffed the high-powered Captials attack in a home-and-home sweep last month as Zdeno Chara and the Bruins defense shut down Alex Ovechkin in both contests. Thomas became the first Boston goaltender on Wednesday, after a 5-2 win against the Buffalo Sabres, to win his first seven games in a season.
The Bruins have won all five of their road games this season and will look to hold Ovechkin without a point again on Friday night in Washington.
