Boston Bruins Score
January 8, 2012 by staff
Boston Bruins Score, Henrik Sedin broke a tie with the third of Vancouver’s four power-play goals and the Canucks beat the defending champion Boston Bruins 4-3 on Saturday in the first game between the teams since the Stanley Cup finals.
The Bruins won their first title in 39 years by taking the last two games of the seven-game series.
Ryan Kesler lifted the Canucks, who have the NHL’s best power play, to a 1-0 lead 5:41 into the first period, but Brad Marchand and Rich Peverley responded for Boston. Alexander Burrows tied it at 15:21 of the second period and Sedin put the Canucks ahead at 19:47.
Vancouver’s Cody Hodgson and Boston’s David Krejci scored in the first two minutes of the third period.
Boston began the day leading the NHL in goals scored and goals against. Vancouver was the second-highest scoring team and third stingiest.
The Canucks did their scoring against Tim Thomas, their nemesis in the Cup finals when he won the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player. He later won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender.
That series sparked bad feelings between the teams.
Boston’s Nathan Horton missed the final four games after suffering a concussion in Game 3 on an open-ice hit by Aaron Rome. The Bruins were the much more physical team, pushing stars Henrik and Daniel Sedin around with little response. And Boston fans chanted “Luongo, Luongo” about Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo, who struggled much of the series and was pulled in the first period of Boston’s 5-2 win in Game 6.
They did it again just 1:55 into Saturday’s game even though Cory Schneider played goalie the entire game.
