Tim Thomas Named NHL’s \"First Star\"

Boston -- The National Hockey League (NHL) announced today that Boston Bruins goaltender, Tim Thomas, has been named the league’s “First Star” for the week ending December 24.

Thomas backstopped the Bruins to three victories last week, posting a 1.33 goals-against average and .959 save percentage, stopping 94 of 98 shots.

Thomas began the week by making 35 saves as Boston defeated the Senators 7-2 on Dec. 19 in Ottawa.

Just two nights later, Thomas recorded 39 saves in a 2-0 victory over Vancouver at the TD Banknorth Garden on December 21 - his first shutout of the season and second of his NHL career. In the shutout, Thomas turned in a stellar third-period performance against the Canucks, turning aside all 14 shots he faced in the final frame.

Finally, Thomas completed the week by making 20 saves in a 4-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on December 23, improving his season record to 16-8-2 with a 2.92 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.

Manny Legace of the St. Louis Blues and Vincent Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning were named the second and third “Stars” respectively.

This is the second time this season that Thomas has been named a “Star of the Week” by the NHL, as he was named the “Third Star” for his play during the week ending November 19.

In honor of Thomas’ achievement, the Boston Bruins Foundation will donate $1000 in Tim’s name to the charity of his choice. Thomas will present the donation prior to the Bruins game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday, January 4 in the TD Banknorth Garden at 7:00 p.m.

The B's need their Seventh Man again that night, so be sure to pick up your seat!
