GAME 6: VAN 2 – BOS 5

BOSTON – With the chance to close out the Finals and win the Cup, the Canucks once again faltered on the road and allowed the Bruins to tie the series and force a Game 7.

The outcome of the game was basically set after the first period alone. Brad Marchand opened the scoring at 5:31 and was followed up 35 seconds later by Milan Lucic. Andrew Ference added one on the power play a little over two minutes later and Michael Ryder made it 4-0 just 70 seconds later.

Roberto Luongo was pulled after Ference’s goal and was replaced by Cory Schneider for the second time in three games.

A power-play goal by Henrik Sedin 22 seconds into the third period broke Tim Thomas‘ bid for a fourth shutout in the playoffs.

David Krejci ended the Canucks’ hope of a comeback with his tally on the power play at the 6:59 mark.

Maxim Lapierre added one more for Vancouver with 2:26 remaining in the game.

NEXT GAME: Wednesday at 8 p.m.

SERIES: 3-3
