Spotlight On Game One of The Bruins-Canadiens Playoff Tomorrow Night

Spotlight on goalies as Canadiens face Bruins

      BOSTON (AP) – Goalies Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins and Carey
Price of the Montreal Canadiens are going into their playoff series
on Thursday night after strong regular seasons.
      Thomas led the NHL in save percentage and goals against average
after sitting out all 13 of the Bruins' playoff games last year
with an injured hip. Price started just one of the Canadiens' 19
postseason games after losing his job to Jaroslav Halak.
      Thomas said Wednesday – after the Bruins practiced for about 45
minutes – that every year is different and presents a new
opportunity. Price started 70 games after the Canadiens traded
Halak to St. Louis last June.
      During the regular season, Montreal was 4-2 against Boston with
one of those wins in overtime.
