The Boston Bruins have evened up the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals at 2 games each.
The game was comfortably decided when Thomas decided to take justice into his own hands. The Canucks were on a power play, and Burrows was scrapping at the edge of his crease. He reached out and whacked the butt end of Thomas’ stick, knocking it out of his hand.
Thomas corralled the lumber and gave Burrows a sizable whack on the outside of the right leg. The Canucks’ rat then came hard at the goalie, and it looked like the pair were locked up, trying to drop their gloves and have a go. They would have, had Seidenberg not intervened to tackle Burrows.
It’s great to have such a warrior back there,” said B’s defenseman Dennis Seidenberg. “He hits guys, he defends his crease. It’s awesome.”
