Bruins get slapped away: Semin's blast carries Capitals
By Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff / January 18, 2009
"As Thomas saw Semin charge toward him, he tried to make himself as big as possible.
"Semin is coming down that wing with speed, and I know he's got a really good shot," Thomas said. "You try to take the angle, butterfly, and take away everything, but he put it in a pretty good place."
That place was over Thomas's glove, planted there after Semin wound up and stepped into a slapper.
"Guy LaFleur-ish," Thomas called it. "There's not many times where a guy has that much time to wind up for a slap shot like that."
