The Bruins won Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals 3-1 to take a 3-2 series lead. Tim Thomas made 33 saves, but perhaps none were bigger than the stop he made on Steve Downie in the third period.

Thomas dove back to cover up his open net when Downie (no relation to myself) fired a shot that Thomas somehow managed to miraculously stop with his stick.
