On Friday, May 27, 2011, Thomas posted a shutout victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, sending the Boston Bruins to their first Stanley Cup appearance since 1990. In the Finals, Thomas again posted a shutout victory in Game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks. He was selected as the [[Conn Smythe Trophy]] winner, being only the second American-born NHL player to ever win the award, and the first in 17 years. During the Bruins' playoff run, he set the record for most saves in a single postseason with 798 and the most saves in a Stanley Cup series with 238, and broke [[Frank McCool]]'s 66-year old record of fewest goals allowed in a 7-game Stanley Cup Finals, allowing only eight goals total (for an all-time record .967 save percentage in the Stanley Cup Finals). Thomas also became the first goaltender ever to post a shutout in a Game 7 on the road. At 37 years, 62 days, Thomas is the oldest recipient of the Conn Smythe Trophy, the first American-born winner of the trophy since [[Brian Leetch]] in 1994, and the first American-born goaltender to win the award.<ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/stanleycup/story/2011/06/15/sp-connsmythe.html |title=Bruins' Thomas wins Conn Smythe award|work=cbc.ca |date= 2011-06-15|accessdate=15 June 2011}}</ref>
