End of 40: Bruins 3, Canucks 0

by Mark Marino http://www.thehubofhockey.net

BOSTON — Add two more unanswered goals for the home team, as the Bruins now lead the Canucks 3-0 after two periods at the TD Garden.



  • Despite the 45-degree slant in the ice — towards the offensive zone — it took the B’s about five minutes to get their first shot on Luongo in the second frame. Nonetheless, at the 11:11 mark…
  • …Tyler Seguin made a perfect diagonal pass through the neutral zone to Michael Ryder. No. 73 drove down the left-wing and snapped it past (deflected off Vancouver defenseman Sami Salo’s stick) Luongo glove-side high.
  • Brad Marchand put the B’s up 3-0 a little over two-minutes later with some heavy forechecking. The rookie came barreling in behind Luongo’s net, taking out defenseman Keith Ballard and causing a turnover. Patrice Bergeron followed pursuit, dug the puck out and flicked it out to Marchand — on  Luongo’s doorstep — who softly backhanded it high, glove-side again, past the Vancouver netminder.
  • Tim Thomas continues his solid game…remaining perfect with 25 saves (13 this period)
  • Vancouver burned their timeout right after, but to no avail. Boston continued their physical play and finished the dominant second period.
  • The Bruins went 0-for-1 on the power play; now 3-for-14 (21.4%) this series.
  • Boston will be 49 second shorthanded, killing-off a Johnny Boychuk delay of game penalty
  • Kelly is 7-for-11 (64%) on the face-off dot…Lucic leads the team with four shots on goal…Chara with 16:31 TOI…Seidenberg has four hits and two blocked shots
