Canucks cut lead
Posted By Dan Rowinski On February 6, 2010 @ 2:43 pm In General | No Comments
Boston kept the Canucks defensive in the second period by getting on the power play early. Vancouver forward Mason Raymond  went to the box for a delay-of-game call at 1:58 and was joined by Henrik Sedin  for a slash at 3:50. The Bruins had opportunities in front of Roberto Luongo  but could not bury the puck that would give them a 3-0 advantage.
The Bruins would pay for it later in the period when Raymond was fed off the back wall by Ryan Kesler . Raymond handled the puck and took two steps left before putting it passed Tuukka Rask  at 8:51.
Boston took two penalties in the period but were able to kill them both. The first was a trip against Michel Ryder at 5:36 and the second interference against Zdeno Chara  at 10:12. The Bruins had a couple more opportunities on the power play when Canucks defenseman Shane O’Brien interfered with Bruins forward Mark Recchi  (really, he checked him into the back of the net behind Luongo) but the Canucks were able to earn the kill.
Bruins still lead, 2-1 at the end of two.
Bruins — 25
Canucks — 12
