Just about 20 minutes after Alex Burrows broke-through and found the back of the net to give the Vancouver Canucks a 1-0 lead over the Boston Bruins in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Milan Lucic struck back, cleaning up the trash in front of Roberto Luongo’s net to even the score. Lucic took advantage of a scramble situation after a drive from the point, beating Luongo to the post to tie the game at one, giving Boston its first goal of the series. The Bruins had been held scoreless for the first 89 minutes of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Luongo had been terrific in Game 2, but fell victim to a mass of bodies and a loose puck in front of the net at the nine minute mark of the second period. Boston had put the Vancouver net under-seige, and Lucic capitalized. Johnny Boychuk and David Krejci for the pass from behind the net and shot from the point.
In the second period, the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks are tied at one in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
