Tim Thomas made 54 saves on 56 attempts through two games in the Bruins opening-round series with the Washington Capitals. Pretty impressive. Thomas' stellar performance has helped the B's draw to a 1-1 tie in the seven-game series, as the two teams head back to Washington. The outrageous effort and Thomas' miniscule 0.83 GAA thus far have helped Boston build momentum and in return has earned him honors as the DCU Hero of the Week. Check out the video above to see highlights and reaction to Thomas' impressive week in net.
