Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 3: Boston Explodes For Four Goals In Second

Andrew Ference, Mark Recchi, Brad Marchand and David Krejci all lit the net in a momentum-shifting second period, and the Boston Bruins hold a 4-0 after two periods in Game 3 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals at TD Garden.

Ference netted the game's first goal 11 seconds into the period, assisted by Rich Peverley and Krejci.

Recchi put the Bruins on top 2-0 at the 4:22 mark with his power play goal, passing the puck to Peverley in front of the net, but Vancouver's Ryan Kessler tipped the puck into his own net.

Marchand scored an unassisted, short-handed goal 11:30 into the period and Krejci put the icing on the cake with his goal at the 15:47 mark in the second period.

Tim Thomas has played exceptionally well, re-routing all 28 shots that he's face. Roberto Luongo, on the other hand, has struggled mightily, surrendering four goals in just over 15 minutes.

Boston was outshot 17-14 by Vancouver, which has had five power-play opportunities but has failed to convert on all of them. The Bruins have won only 13 of 36 faceoffs, but have 33 hits to Vancouver's 21. Both teams have 18 blocked shots.
