      BOSTON (AP) – Shortly after the Boston Bruins lost Nathan Horton
to a frightening injury, they found a dazzling offensive rhythm
that got them back into the Stanley Cup finals.
      Andrew Ference and David Krejci each had a goal and an assist
during Boston's four-goal second period, Tim Thomas made 40 saves,
and the Bruins beat the Canucks 8-1 in Game 3 on Monday night,
trimming Vancouver's series lead to 2-1.
      Mark Recchi scored two goals for the Bruins, who turned a big
win into a blowout with four more goals in the final 8½ minutes of
the third period.
      Boston emerged from an offensive slump after Horton was taken
off the ice on a stretcher in the first period after taking a late
hit to the head from Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome.
      Game 4 is Wednesday in Boston.
