Boston Bruins Tim Thomas Tweaks his Gear Again
In today’s matinee vs. Philadelphia, won 3-2 by the Bruins, goalie gear aficionados will have noticed a significant change to Boston goaltender Tim Thomas’ equipment. Wearing the non-branded mystery pads and glove that InGoal first reported on in the pre-season, today Thomas added a change to the blocker he has always remained faithful to and told InGoal just fit his game better than the one that matched the Vaughn gear he wore at the time – completing the set with a new unbranded one today.
Thomas has tried versions of this gear throughout the season, always returning to his old equipment, suggesting he has struggled to get the new brand dialed-in – but today he appeared in a complete set for the first time.
Thanks as always to InGoal’s Scott Slingsby for the timely photography.
