Finally, the Boston Bruins are on the board. The goal goes to Milan Lucic, and they've scored their first goal of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final against the Vancouver Canucks.
That's the thing: if the Bruins have any chance in this series, they need scoring from their top line of Lucic, Nathan Horton and David Krejci. That showed in this goal-scoring shift. Krejci gained the puck behind the net and schooled Alex Burrows in some one-on-one play. He tossed it up top to his defenseman, Johnny Boychuk, who took a heavy shot on goal.
It never got there. It bounced off a body and down in front of the net, where Lucic outworked Christian Ehrhoff in front of the net, got to the loose puck and batted it behind Roberto Luongo. 1-1 game, and the Bruins have life.
