Thomas Leads Bruins Past Islanders

The Bruins have now started a new hot streak, earning their fourth straight victory Thursday night thanks to a 2-1 win over the Islanders. Marc Savard broke a scoreless tie in the second period with his 15th goal, and Martin St. Pierre scored in the third to put the Bruins up 2-0. Former Bruins forward Bill Guerin scored with less than a minute to go, but the B’s held on for the 2-1 victory.

Goaltender Tim Thomas was the first star of the game, finishing with 40 saves in 41 chances. He held the Islanders at bay in the first, stopping all 17 shots he faced. He made some dazzling saves and has been the big reason for the Bruins’ success.

“Timmy was our best player,” Boston coach Claude Juilen said. “He held the fort.”

Well said, Mr. Julien. Tim Thomas has been the Bruins’ best player all season. He’s been great and it’s nice to see him going to the All-Star game.

Defensmen Zdeno Chara and Dennis Wideman led all Bruins skaters in ice time with more than 25 minutes. Chara had a 0 +/- rating while Wideman finished at +1.

The Bruins next play the Capitals Saturday night.
