Tim Thomas celebrated his new four-year contract with a 1-0 win over the New York Rangers that clinched the best record in the Eastern Conference for the Boston Bruins on Saturday. He also got into a brief tussle with Sean Avery after the Rangers wing tapped the back of Thomas' head with his stick during a stoppage in play with 5:24 left as the goalie knelt in front of the crease. Both received two-minute penalties.

The teams met in a potential first-round playoff preview. The Rangers hold the eighth and final postseason spot in the East with three games left. Florida was idle Saturday and trails them by two points with four games left.

Rookie Blake Wheeler scored his 21st goal at 9:04 of the first period.
