The Florida Panthers strolled into town Thursday night to take on the Bruins, meaning the return of Tim Thomas.
Thomas, who was a part of the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup championship team, came back with the Panthers but did not play against his former team.
Gary Tanguay and DJ Bean of WEEI.com discussed Thomas’ place in Bruins history on Sports Tonight.
“He does go down as one of the great Bruins of all-time,” Bean said. “And if he stuck around another year, his number is retired here, absolutely. And maybe he is even a Hall of Famer if he wins another Vezina.”
