Upon his arrival in Boston late Sunday afternoon, Canucks coach Alain Vigneault called Rich Peverley [1]‘€™s slash on Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa in the second period of Saturday’€™s Game 2 a dirty play.

‘€œKevin didn’€™t get hit,’€ Vigneault said when asked about the Canucks matching the physical play of the Bruins. ‘€œHe got a cheap shot in the back of the knee, so that’€™s totally different. He went down by something you don’€™t want to see in the game. But at the end of the day, we know they’€™re a big, physical team and we can play a speed game but we can play a physical game, which I think we’€™ve shown throughout the playoffs.’€

Bieksa returned after limping to the bench and no penalty was called on the play. The Canucks outhit the Bruins, 40-31, Game 2 Saturday after the Bruins held a 31-30 advantage in Game 1.
