Thursday, November 7th
BOSTON, MA - It was supposed to be a dramatic return, but what could have been a Hollywood blockbuster turned into a silent movie.
Tim Thomas did not speak to the media as he and the Florida Panthers made their first visit to Boston to face the Bruins on Thursday.
Thomas took part in Florida's morning skate on the TD Garden ice where he won two Vezina Trophies and backs the Bruins to a Stanley Cup, but did not play in the game Thursday night.
Thomas is battling a lower body injury and is currently on the disabled list. He wasn't officially removed from the list before Thursday night's game and by league rules, therefore wasn't required to be available to the media. He chose not to speak and so now fans and the press will have to wait until Thursday, January 28th, Florida's next trip to Boston, to possibly hear Thomas talk about returning to face his former team.
