No. 1 Vancouver Canucks vs. No. 3 Boston Bruins
GAME 2: VAN 3 – BOS 2, OT

VANCOUVER – The Canucks seemingly enjoy thrilling, game-winning goals within 20 seconds of the start or end of periods.

Alex Burrows scored his eighth of the playoffs to open the scoring at 12:12 of the first period on the power play.

It took until nine minutes into the second for the Bruins to get their first tally of the series, tying the game from a Milan Lucic goal. The Bruins took the lead 2:35 later with a power-play goal from Mark Recchi.

Daniel Sedin brought the Canucks back to tie the game at 9:37 of the third period.

Unlike last game, this one did make it into overtime, though it didn’t last long.

At just 11 seconds into the extra frame, Burrows struck again, drawing Tim Thomas out of his net for an easy wrap-around goal. The goal was the second fastest in Stanley Cup Finals history.

NEXT GAME: Monday at 8 p.m.

SERIES: 2-0 Vancouver
