Tim Thomas led the Bruins onto the ice at the Pepsi Center on Saturday, meaning he will be between the pipes for the team's bout with the Avalanche. Tim Thomas last started on Tuesday, making a season-high 43 saves in a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. On the season, Thomas is 22-4-6 with a league-best 1.83 goals against average, .945 save percentage, and seven shutouts. Facing Colorado also means seeing Matt Hunwick, whom the Bruins traded to the Avalanche on Nov. 29 in exchange for Colby Cohen. The defenseman was a victim of the team's salary cap spot as they prepared for the return of Marc Savard. In 22 games with the Bruins this season, Hunwick had three points (1 G, 2 A) and a plus-4. In 23 games with the Avalanche, he has three assists and is a minus-9.
