    What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    It seems like every goal against him gets through there.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    I'm not blaming TT for tonight's horrible performance... when you give up 20 shots in 1 period, you're expecting a lot from ANY goalie. But does anyone else think that players have scouted the 5-hole shot on Timmy?

    This game was NOT TT's fault. The B's aren't playing 60 minutes. They only play hard when they are mad.

    UNBELIEVABLE!!! The B's get outshot 23-7 in a period & they're only down by 2 & the TT bashers find a way to place blame on him! This is getting so ridiculous.

    it seems that you could not wait to post your comment. 
    it seems like the forwards are sleep walking .Thomas saved it from getting out of reach and gave the Bruins a chance to get back in this one

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    Maybe they have scouted his five-hole! Every goalie has a weakness. Marty's was wrap arounds for the first 4 seasons he played. It becomes a problem when he's allowing 4 goals a game & two of them are in that area. And you know what? It's great that all the teams are shooting there NOW! Come play-offs, he won't be allowing those. Pat Roy & Andy Moog both decent goalie's allowed goals in the five hole a lot. It happens to the best of them. TT gave the B's a chance to win tonight & that's the number 1 thing you ask your goalie.

    Folks, before you bash comments... you might want to read. I even said I wasn't blaming TT. Just pointing to a weakness that it seems everyone has picked up on.

    Even if Thomas was not bad i prefer to see Rask at least once a week, Chiarelli to save his job and prove the big TT contract  can  break the career of this young goalie.

    The hell with the goalies, when can we get a new coach, and why is recchi on the ice in the last minute of the game over Krejci?

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    OH come on Blue chip! How's this going to break Rask's career? If he really had a huge problem with it he never would've signed a 3 yr extension & he would've pulled a Kessel! He's actually lucky he's with the B's because if he was anywhere else that has a #1 goalie he would'nt be playing as much as he is. Imagine if it was Calgary, Jersey, NYR, Pitts, Buff, Carolina. The B's are not going to make the same mistake they made with Raycroft & Toineven.

    TT let in 2goals tonight and gave the Bruins a chance to win. It's not his fault this team can't score when they have to. They had 3 chances on the PP to score and as usual no goals. The Bruins have to score on the PP and get someone to play with Savy, TT can only carry these guys on his back so far. Time has been coming for awhile now to get a sniper, PC should make a move ASAP.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    Tonights shouldnt have even been a goal .. the shot from foster hit malone in the hand and deflected down between TT's legs, next touched by st.louis who put it in the net. refs blew a ton of calls tonight and this was just another one .. it was a damn hand pass in the offensive zone. So the play should have been blown dead apon the touch of the puck.

    It's not just this game but the season as a whole.  Lots of soft goal in the "5" hole.

    Did you people even watch the game, TT kept this game close. Is this a south of the boarder thing (not knowing) or do you just hate everything boston?

    Without TT last night, the game would of been 5 -0 going into the third.  Krejci, Sobotka, Boychuk and Bergeron looked like they  might of been the only B's playing a full 60 minutes.  Don't give me this Back to Back bs either. They aren't the only team playing back to back.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    The B's need a sniper!!!!!! You cannot win, if you cannot score! Paying too much money, for forwards who under perform every game. It is time to send a message to the under achieving players. The B's have too many players playing at the NHL level, that should not be there. Recchi is too old, to slow, and should retire. Let one of the kids come up and play? B's are not FUN, to watch, they have no offense, unble to carry the puck out of their own end! Hard to watch a team struggle so often on Offense. Savard needs a Sniper, and things would improve! The B's are not fun to watch, more like, FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    steveeb, couldn't agree more. Only prob with getting a sniper is he will be sitting at center ice waiting for the other team to break out of there zone. CJ got fired from the devils at seasons end for a reason. When there's no adjustments to the game plan other teams figure it out really quick.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    The first goal was scored due to a TERRIBLE rebound given up by Thomas.  He freezes that puck, and the B's go to OT and possibly win in the SO.

    When you are only scoring 1-2 goals a game, you cant allow bad goals.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    Kovalchuk's breakaway goal on Thomas last week says it all.  Thomas took away the 5-hole and gave him the whole top of the net, but Kovy still threaded it through 5.

    Krazyjoe. Never played net in your life have you? You have no idea how those bouncing pucks can be a nightmare. (no pun intended) Ever see a baseball take those crazy hops. A puck is worse because of the shape. It hits just right on it's edge & it does some crazy stuff. You see a lot of those bounces go straight in let alone getting enough to keep it out. Besides, how did Tanguay beat his man to the net? Obviously somebody missed their coverage in the d-zone.

    Re: What's with the Thomas 5-hole?

    It's not a five-hole it's a BUS hole on TT. He over plays most shots and ends up out of position. For those that think he kept the B's in it are fools. He darn near let it be 7-0 with all those close calls. If Tampa had any luck or more scoring touch they would have blown them out early 'cause of TT. Too much havoc when he is in net. Rask will be the only chance for a deep cup run, so if they go with TT this spring....wait 'till next year when TT is on the west coast.

    OH OH! One of the nimrods is back I see! Or, is he just using one of his many names? 10 as an moron & 1 as an even bigger 1? Go away Sparky nobody cares what you think. Go back & sit on Santa's knee & ask him to bring you half a brain for Christmas. Your village called looking for you...They're missing their idiot!

    TT works hard and keeps the team in the game.  He does allow lots of 5 hole goals.  Always has, seems to be his weakness.  Still like him, just an observation.
