Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas has been receiving some attention as of late for his, should we say, exuberant play in the crease during the Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Final series with the Vancouver Canucks.

Philadelphia Flyers fans are not known for their love of the Boston Bruins, but the play of Thomas has to bring a smile to the faces of fans of long retired Flyers goalie Ron Hextall. 

Hextall, taking over where Islanders Billy Smith left off, set the standard for "aggressive" play in the crease, setting records for most penalty minutes in a season for a goalie (113) and most penalty minutes in a career for a goalie (548)

What follows are videos of some of Hextall's most memorable moments along with Tim Thomas' highlights from this year's Cup finals.
