Well that sucks
Not much to say about this one. The Vancouver Canucks skated harder, were a tiny bit more physical and got the slightly better goaltending. The Bruins had their chances but either were stone-walled by Luongo or just flat-out missed. Missing those early power plays killed us. They were brilliant opportunities that the Bruins simply fucked up. The “two-minute break” power play was in full effect tonight.
Now the Bruins face the difficult task of winning two games in a row including one in Vancouver to win the cup. The Boston crowd will be nuts on Monday, no doubt about that. The Bruins need to come with Game 3/4 intensity to get the series back to Vancouver.
Even if they do, Vancouver is just a different team at home.
I’m officially worried.
