CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- If Tim Thomas is in net, the Boston

Bruins likely will not need to mount much offense.

Coming off back-to-back shutouts by Thomas, the Bruins will try

for their fourth straight win when they visit the Calgary Flames

on Thursday.

Thomas registered consecutive blankings as Boston began its

three-game road trip with a pair of 1-0 victories. The

34-year-old goaltender made 27 saves on Monday en route to the

win over the Edmonton Oilers before stopping all 31 shots in

Tuesday's victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

The Bruins will attempt to make it a perfect trek when they face

the Flames, who are coming off a shutout of their own.

Miikka Kiprusoff stopped all 22 shots he faced and Calgary

scored three times in the third period en route to a 3-0 triumph

over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday.

Curtis Glencross scored at 8:22 of the third to snap a scoreless

tie and ignite the Flames. Rene Bourque and Mike Cammalleri

notched a goal and an assist apiece for Calgary, which has won

four in a row.
