Thomas was the victim of a monstrous hit by a helmet-less Bruins defenseman Torey Krug on Monday. The check is one of the key moments of the first contest of the intense series. The blue liner was not penalized on what many believed to be a charging play.
The hit took place in the last moments of the game, and so, an injury on Thomas might have been noticed just after the contest.
And it seems to be lingering or serious enough to keep him out of Game 2…
