Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 5 Score: Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo Back To Domination Status

Tim Thomas has been absolutely mindbogglingly incredible in the Stanley Cup Finals this year, and really, since October. But he's allowed three goals in four and two-thirds games so far, and really, that's just... words are tough to come by. When the defense in front of him makes a mistake, he's almost always there to bail them out.

He, very simply, could steal a Stanley Cup this year. 

In Games 1 and 2, Roberto Luongo was right there with him, arguably a bit better even. In Games 3 and 4, Luongo was terrible to the point where Canucks fans questioned his ability -- for the umpteenth time this season, mind you. But now in Game 5, the game that could very well be the turning point of the series, Luongo is certainly just as up to the task as his counterpart.

We're through two periods at Rogers Arena, and it's looking a whole lot like Game 1 of this series. Lots of power plays, no goals. Lots of chances, no goals. Lots of big saves and missed opportunities all over the place. 0-0 score. One goal could easily win things -- again. Not sure which team that benefits more at this point.
