    Last night’s best string of saves is also one video you can point to if you want to describe the unorthodox yet effective style mastered by Tim Thomas.

    It’s almost like a metaphor for the Boston Bruins’ 3-0 shutout of the New Jersey Devils, right? Mark Stuart absolutely flattened Mattias Tedenby in this clip, which I believe doesn’t carry the moral burden of being a dirty hit. Even if it was a little morally questionable … my goodness, he really let him have…

    Every once in a while, a hockey player scores a goal that would have forced me to chuck a controller if it happened in a video game. Thomas Vanek’s beauty would probably fit into that category.

    Before the jump, you get Ray Whitney’s hat trick. If you stick around to click the post, you get Evgeni Malkin’s. We’re sneaky like that.
