Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 3 Score: Boston Runs Riot In Second Period

After Nathan Horton was taken out of the game by Aaron Rome in the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Boston Bruins looked deflated. They only put together a couple of chances during their five minute power play, then proceeded to get outplayed by the Vancouver Canucks as Tim Thomas kept the score tied. It appeared as though the Canucks had the momentum heading into the locker room. If they did, it disappeared quickly.

The Bruins were downright dominant in the second period, making Roberto Luongo and the Canucks defense look pedestrian. As a result, they now lead by a score of 4-0 after four periods.

Boston scored their first goal just eleven seconds into the period, the same period of time it took Vancouver to score in overtime in Game 2. Alexander Edler broke his stick trying to clear the puck, gifting Boston an easy opportunity, and Andrew Ference capitalized.

Mark Recchi scored the second goal, unintentionally assisted by Ryan Kesler on the power play, while Brad Marchand scored the third on a stunning shorthanded goal that made Luongo look like he was a boy playing against men. David Krejci added a fourth for good measure, and Boston are absolutely cruising to a Game 3 victory.
