Before the game
1st period Alex Burrows scores from Daniel Sedin. Those twins should have been triplets as Alex and the twins are so well tuned they can anticipate where each other is going to be a minute from now.
Manny Malhotra #27 played in the 2nd period and the fans went wild chanting "Manny Manny Manny" Everyone was so happy to see him well recovered and back in the game after being off since March 16th He played great and made valuable contributions to the game.
Then Robertos face mask was literally "pucked off" but he still made the save
Then somehow it was 2 - 1 for Boston. At some point Kevin Bieksa went down and we were terrified for a minute but he was ok. Then Daniel Sedin scored to tie it up and it was 2-2 at the end of regulation time.
It lasted just 11 seconds when Alex Burrows got a wraparound goal. It was the second fastest goal in playoff history and i was stunned by the beauty of it. Too bad i don't know how to move the video clip here, so just imagine if you will......
So, Alex takes a shot and misses; he follows the puck around the back of the net and gets us a little wraparound goal. AMAZING GOAL! and the crowd goes wild!
Next, game 3 in Boston on Monday June 6 and can the Bruins get their game back on their own ice? Their coach said they know their shortfall is turning the puck over to us in the neutral zone.....and thats one of the Canucks strong points. Well, maybe but seriously, we have alot of strong points and don't rely on anyones mistakes. Uhh maybe ya should try and fix that hole do ya think?
Oh, btw, the 2 Boston goals were scored by B.C'ers; Milan Lucic from Vancouver and Mark Rechhi from Kamloops, B.C.
Yes we do turn out alot of great hockey players; that's what we do and we are seeking Stanley!
And every game another Canuck steps up.
