Bruins Vs. Canucks Score: Daniel Sedin's Third Period Goal Forces Overtime

We're heading to overtime in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals after Daniel Sedin found the back of the net for the Vancouver Canucks midway through the third period to knot the score at two. The Boston Bruins had taken the lead with two goals in just over two minutes in the second period, and looked poised to steal a game on Vancouver's home ice. The two teams were unable to break the tie, and we have our first overtime game of these Stanley Cup Finals.

The third period was chippy and bordering on out of control as penalties went uncalled and the taunting ramped up. Patrice Bergeron was on the receiving end of one such taunting instance as Max Lapierre stuck his finger out and dared Bergeron to bite it, but to no real avail. Bergeron made headlines after falling victim to Alex Burrows' teeth in Game 1, though Burrows did not draw a suspension for his actions.

Burrows and Alexander Edler were credited with assists on Sedin's goal. Burrows also found the back of the net himself in the first period as the Canucks struck first. With the score knotted at two, the Canucks and Bruins will settle this one in overtime in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
