THE BEST MAN WINS – TIM THOMAS LIFTS THE STANLEY CUP

Just as Massachusetts and twelve colonies beat back the British well over 200 years ago and earned their freedom, these Bostonians sent the British Columbians back to their homeland for the final battle and left their city in ashes. They did so against great odds and contrary to the talking heads’ predictions who fancy themselves experts. “Vancouver in 6.” “Vancouver in 5.” “Vancouver sweeps.” They were wrong.

I wrote before this series commenced, “Tim Thomas lifting the Cup would bring justice to this season.” Timothy James Thomas, Jr., known as the Tank, led his troops to victory, earned his legacy and rightful place in history.

  3. That was a phenomenal performance by Tim Thomas. No other netminder has won 3 Game 7′s in a playoff year, and it will be a good long time before anyone does again. Thomas may well have put himself in the Hall of Fame with this performance.
