Tim Thomas' Impressive Play in Net Earns Him Honors as DCU Hero of the Week (Video)

The Bruins are in the midst of the first of what they hope is many rounds of playoff action this spring.

Caps Fans Hilariously Heckle Thomas

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas made major headlines this January when he declined attending Boston’s championship trip to the White House in an effort to make a political statement against Barack Obama.

Capitals Fans Reminded Tim Thomas To Vote

Back in January, Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas stirred the political pot a great deal when he refused to attend his team’s visit to the White House to meet President Barack Obama for their Stanley Cup Championship.

Semin shows spark (at last) in Caps' win

He's become the forgotten Alex in DC.
