If a 1-0 lead seems insurmountable with Tim Thomas in net, a three-goal lead is, essentially, game over. The Boston Bruins goaltender is in top-form in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and is still hanging onto a shutout as the Vancouver Canucks have been unable to solve the Thomas mystery. Through two and a half periods, Thomas has seen 25 shots and saved all 25, keeping the Canucks scoreless and the Bruins in control.
Boston put three goals on the board in the first two periods, two of which came from Patrice Bergeron. His goal in the first period gave Boston an early lead, and his goal in the second all but sealed the game. Between the two goals, Brad Marchand tallied one of his own, giving the Bruins all the insurance they've needed.
Halfway through the third period, the Canucks need a miracle. The Bruins lead Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, 3-0.
