Canucks Beat Bruins to Take 3-2 Lead in the Series
Bruins struggle again on power play
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – The Boston Bruins came into
the Stanley Cup finals answering questions about an inept power
play and inability to score.
They're facing them again after failing to covert four early
chances with the man advantage, and failing to cash in against
Roberto Luongo in a 1-0 loss in Game 5 on Friday night.
Boston had three power-play chances in the first period, and got
another on a questionable call early in the second. But other than
forcing a couple great saves on consecutive chances off Milan
Lucic's deflection and Patrice Bergeron alone in the slot on the
rebound, the Bruins barely tested Luongo.
Considering they beat the Canucks goalie 12 times the last two
games in Boston, and chased him from the third period of Game 4,
they may regret it.
