Random Bruins highlight: Tim Thomas’ Superman save against Toronto

Thomas made a lot of mind-blowing saves, but this was the best of the best.

It’s summer! We need content, you need a quick read/view. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with a daily dose of Bruins nostalgia.

When: December 4, 2010

What: After a turnover in the corner, Francois Beauchemin has a wide-open net and a tap-in to win the game for Toronto in overtime. Tim Thomas has other ideas.

Tim Thomas routinely made spectacular saves as a member of the Bruins. Many of them came from him being out of position due to his aggressive style, but that’s neither here nor there.

This save came from the 2010-2011 season, also known as Peak Tim Thomas Time™.

With the Bruins and Leafs in OT in Toronto, Clarke MacArthur gathered a loose puck and found Francois Beauchemin all alone in the slot.

This one was such a sure goal that you can see Colby Armstrong begin to celebrate before Beauchemin takes his shot.

Look at Armstrong:


You’ve been Thomas’d, my friend.

The Bruins would actually go on to lose this game in a shootout when Phil Kessel scored, but whatever, the season ended with a Stanley Cup.

Plus, that save ruled.
