Thomas to start in goal for Bruins
BOSTON -- Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas led his team onto the ice for pregame warmups at TD Garden, indicating he will be the starting goaltender against the Montreal Canadiens tonight.

This will be Thomas' third straight start. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner is 3-3-0 with a 2.16 goals-against average this season.

Carey Price, a winner last night at home against Philadelphia, gets the start as expected for the Canadiens.
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
