Bruins Vs. Canucks Update, Game 4: Boston And Vancouver Scoreless Through First Ten Minutes

Game 4 in Boston is something that is going to pump with the home crowd naturally but the Boston Bruins got the crowd even more into the game with the honorary captain being none other than Bobby Orr. The Bruins honorary captain starts the flag that gets passed around the lower bowl of the TD Garden and he started the flag by waiving a Nathan Horton banner above his head in the process. Needless to say, the Bruins crowd is into the game before it even started. 

Henrik Sedin registered his first shot of the series 1:01 into the first period of Game 4. Sedin had a fantastic series against the San Jose Sharks, but has been non-existent against the Boston Bruins. Sedin has two goals and 19 assists in the playoffs and leads all players in playoff points, but just hasn't really found a scoring touch in many of the series. 

The Canucks got the first real couple of good scoring chances at the five minute mark of the period, with the first coming from Daniel Sedin and the other coming from Alex Burrows. Tim Thomas was able to swallow up both shots and not allow any other quality chances. The Canucks are getting traffic and bodies in front of Thomas early in the game, much like the Bruins did with Luongo in Game 3. 

Micheal Ryder took the first penalty of the game at the 6:58 mark after tripping Ryan Kesler. The Canucks were 1 for 16 on the powerplay in the series heading into this game even though they have a playoff powerplay of 23.5%. The Canucks could not get much going with the man advantage and have not converted on a powerplay chance since Game 2.
