The Vancouver Canucks had something going. 22 seconds into the third period of Game 6, Henrik Sedin cut the Boston Bruins lead to 4-1. It was early in the period, the Bruins were back on their heels and the Canucks had nothing to lose. Just two minutes after Sedin's goal, a Canucks shot rang off the post.
Energy, up. TD Garden crowd, down. We're not saying an unbelievable comeback was on it's way, but with the way the two teams looked at that point, it was at least in the cards. And then, before you could even blink, Raffi Torres tripped somebody up and went to the box. Then, Andrew Alberts cross-checked somebody.
On the 5-on-3 power play, Cory Schneider could only do so much. He made one or two incredible saves, but a cross-crease pass from Mark Recchi to David Krejci was just too much. The Bruins have a 5-1 lead and any hopes that a rally could happen have gone out the window. See you Wednesday, Vancouver.
