Greatest Moment of the 2010-11 Save of the Year vs. 5 Third Period Goals

 

Today's moments come from early in the regular season. Tim Thomas makes the "save of the season," and the Bruins rally for an explosive 5-goal comeback in the third period against the Penguins.

 

Some called it the "save of the year," others called it "grand larceny," and it’s easy to see why. Tim Thomas made an incredible diving save on Toronto’s Francois Beauchemin that probably shouldn’t have happened. Beauchemin had a wide open net to score on in OT from  a failed deke by Clark MacArthur, when Thomas quite literally leaped through the air to make a clutch glove save that left the broadcasters and viewers alike in awe.

By the time the third period rolled around on November 10, 2011, it looked like the Bruins would be leaving Pittsburgh with a loss on their hands, but then they came back with a vengeance. Boston would come out on fire and score five third period goals for a 7-4 victory. Nathan Horton scored early in the period, followed by Zdeno Chara fifteen seconds later to tie the game. Shawn Thornton would break the tie for the game-winner, and then Blake Wheeler and Milan Lucic scored two more for insurance.
