Bruins Vs. Canucks Update, Game 4: Boston Leads, 3-0, After 2nd Period

The Boston Bruins took a 3-0 lead over the Vancouver Canucks in the second period of Game 4 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. In a span of of two-and-one-half minutes, the Bruins extended their lead with two goals.

On the first goal of the period (11:11), Michael Ryder zipped one past Roberto Luongo's glove and shoulder, though it also hit Sami Salo's stick on the way to the net. Brad Marchand put the second one in the net on a backhander.

After putting only six shots on net in the first period, the Bruins had 12 alone in the second period. But the Canucks didn't slow down, putting 13 more shots on Tim Thomas' net. But Thomas is still guarding a shutout, making all 25 saves.

Neither team has taken advantage of the power play, the Canucks missing on all three of their chance, the Bruins on their one.
