Bruins rout Canucks, even Stanley Cup finals

AP Sports Writer
      BOSTON (AP) – Just three days after the Bruins staggered back to
Boston, they've barged right back into the Stanley Cup finals with
two brilliant blowout wins.
      Tim Thomas made 38 saves in his third shutout of the playoffs,
Rich Peverley scored two goals after replacing injured Nathan
Horton on Boston's top line, and the Bruins emphatically evened the
finals at two games apiece with a 4-0 victory over the foundering
Vancouver Canucks in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
      Michael Ryder and Brad Marchand also had goals for the Bruins,
who chased Roberto Luongo early in the third period after
Vancouver's star goalie allowed his 12th goal in less than two
      The finals are now a best-of-three, with Game 5 in Vancouver on
Friday night.
