Panthers' Thomas Appreciated By Bruins Fans

Even after he left them with a season remaining on his contract, Boston Bruins fans still love Tim Thomas. At least thats the message those at the TD Garden sent when they gave him a standing ovation during last nights 4-1 victory over the Florida Panthers.

Of course, Thomas wasn't in goal for Florida to counter Tuukka Rask. Although the 39-year-old goaltender is close to returning from a lower-body injury, he needed a bit more time.

Still, he was happy to be back in Boston.

I was hoping for that kind of reaction from the fans, Thomas told the Miami Herald. I loved playing here. I loved Boston. It was nice to see that response.
