Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas must have known that in his return to D.C. for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, Capitals fans wouldn't let him forget his infamous refusal -- for political reasons -- to attend a White House celebration honoring the team's Stanley Cup win. Naturally, Thomas was greeted by giant Obama heads and posters in every direction.
"What did Wayne Gretzky say? You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take. This was too much of an opportunity to pass up," said fan Mike Holden. "We had Timmy coming to town, and he wants this issue to go away, and we figured we'd put it right in his face."
