Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 3: Mark Recchi Scores, Gives Boston 2-0 Lead In Second Period

They've initially given the goal to Rich Peverley, but it looked on video that it was Mark Recchi who should receive credit, for putting the Boston Bruins up 2-0 over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

Down low on a power play, thanks to a hooking penalty against Jeff Tambellini, Recchi threw the puck across the crease in an attempt to pass to Peverley. A backchecking Ryan Kesler came across the crease and got a piece of the puck, knocking it through the pads of Roberto Luongo.

Wait, Boston scores power play goals? Get the hell outta here. They did, we swear.

Tough break for Vancouver, deserved goal for the Bruins. It's 2-0 in the second period and it finally seems like Boston is getting some of the breaks they weren't getting when the series was at Rogers Arena for Games 1 and 2.
