Boston Bruins Notes, Quotes 2008-10-29
--G Tim Thomas, the first Bruins goalie to play back-to-back games this season, has won 1-0 shutouts on the first two stops of a three-game tour of western Canada. He had 58 saves in the two games.

--The twin 1-0 shutouts are the first for the club since Cecil Thompson had three in a row in 1936 and the two straight shutouts are the first for the Bruins since Byron Dafoe did it in 1999. Boston has not had three shutouts in a row since 1977.

--The Bruins started the trip as the worst penalty killing team in the league but are 6-for-6 in two games.

--Boston scored its only goal Monday on the power play and its only tally Tuesday during a delayed penalty.

--The Bruins have played six games in the last nine nights and have gone 3-1-2.

--This was the Bruins' first visit to Vancouver since Dec. 4, 2005.

--The Bruins have points in six of their seven road games, going 4-1-2 away from home.

--The Bruins are now 28-17-8-0 all time in Vancouver.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I don't know if it's momentum as much as when you play more it is definitely a little bit easier to get on. They had some opportunities right at the beginning of the first period tonight and probably coming off last night helped me because I didn't have the shakiness that you sometimes have at the beginning of games when you haven't played in a while." -- Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, after his second 1-0 shutout in two nights.
