Thomas Blames MSG Lights for Poor Performance

CBS Sports Boston reports that Tim Thomas blamed the dim lighting at MSG for his less than stellar performance (just 13 saves on 17 shots) during the Rangers 4-3 over Boston yesterday.

When asked if he is ready for the increased workload that awaits if backup Tuukka Rask is injured significantly, Thomas responded…

“Yeah. Especially if I go to an arena with lights.”

Henrik Lundqvist is 17-6-2 with a 1.75 gaa and .935 sv% with five shutouts at MSG this season.

…is Thomas kidding me? Nothing worse than an athlete making excuses. Take your medicine like man.

…the so-called light issue doesn’t seem to be having an effect on the Vezina frontrunning Lundqvist.
