If you’re not a huge hockey fan, or your team’s already on the back nine, you probably missed game 3 of the 2011 Boston/Vancouver Stanley Cup finals. As a dedicated Vancouver fan, I have to first hang my head in shame at the abomination of a game that it ended up being, but I then have to give mad props to Tim Thomas, the Boston Bruins goalie. Even if you aren’t a hockey fan, this is one of those moments where you can truly appreciate a ballsy act. You don’t often get a chance to see a goalie get physical, let alone get counted for a hit in the game stats.
Thomas has been criticized for his aggressive style of goal-tending as one that can lead to mistakes, but in this killer video replay, he sends a message to Henrik Sedin and all the haters with a bone-jarring hit: “Get the fuck out of my house.”
Think it’s pretty rad to see a goalie steamroller a forward? I think you’ll enjoy this.
