Blues boot Tim Thomas out of net

The St. Louis Blues are 2-for-2 in getting big-name goalies pulled so far this season.

They did it to Pekka Rinne early in the first period of Thursday’s win against the Nashville Predators and the Blues managed to do so again on Saturday, as Tim Thomas couldn’t make it through all of tonight’s game. He was pulled after allowing five goals on 28 shots through two periods.

If it makes Thomas feel any better, Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on four shots. Maybe the Blues are just that good.

Still, this could also serve as a “Welcome back, it’s not going to be so easy” moment for Thomas.

It’s currently 7-0 Blues, in case you were wondering.

      If they can score and the Bruins can get something from their PP it could easily be a Bruins-Blues Finals.

    Thomas looked a lot like a 39 year old goalie that took a year off….

        It is just satisfying to see a bagger lose.

    I like athletes/bands/actors until they start the political junk. GOP or democrat. I don’t care. Keep it to yourself.

      Some of them are actually well educated, articulate and thoughtful people, and they do not forfeit their right to speak out on important matters just because they become well known in their careers. If we disagree with them, we too have the right to engage in civil debate (personal attacks and name-calling are of no value, IMHO). What bothers me about Tim Thomas is that after engaging in his very public protest by avoiding being honored by our President (and both Bush and Obama have been my President, like them or not), he then refused to discuss it.

    Guess Timmy Thomas was too busy worrying about the government shutdown to focus on the game
