Roberto Luongo probably should've just stayed in Vancouver for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Just minutes after the game began, Luongo found himself back on the bench in favor of Cory Schneider after conceding three goals in the first 8:35, adding to his ghastly total in Boston. As a result, the Bruins hold a 4-0 lead right out of the gate, almost ensuring we'll have a Game 7 on Wednesday night.
Boston hasn't been kind to the Canucks, and with those four early goals Vancouver has been outscored 14-1 in 130 minutes of play at TD Garden Arena during the Stanley Cup Finals. Brad Marchand was first up and beat Luongo short-side just over five minutes in. Just 30 seconds later, Milan Lucic made it two, and Luongo was in big trouble.
There was a bit of a break between goals two and three -- 2:29 to be exact. But on a power play, Andrew Ference netted the Bruins' third goal of the game. Luongo's day was done after the third goal in just three minutes, but Boston wasn't done yet. One minute later, the rout was truly on as Michael Ryder made it four, putting the Canucks into a ridiculously deep hole.
It's 4-0 Bruins in Boston after a shocking start to Game 6. This one's all but over, and Luongo has some time to think and regroup.
