Stanley Cup Finals, Game 2 Score: Mark Recchi Breaks Tie With Power Play Goal

It’s a scoring bonanza for the Boston Bruins in the second period of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Vancouver Canucks took the early lead on Alex Burrows’ first period goal, but in midway through the second Boston evened the score on Milan Lucic’s goal. And just a few minutes later, in the midst of a power play, the Bruins seized their first lead of the series as Mark Recchi capitalized on the man-advantage.

After an 89-minute scoring drought, Boston has suddenly found an unexpected offensive groove in Game 2. For a team that looked quite helpless in Game 1, it’s been surprising, especially with Luongo looking like a brick wall through the first four periods of the series, but thanks to two quick strikes, with only 2:35 in between, the Bruins are threatening to steal a game on the Canucks’ home ice at Rogers Arena.

Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron were credited with assists on the power play goal. Boston took the man advantage after Aaron Rome was whistled for holding at the 10:26 mark in the second period. With the goal, the Bruins took a 2-1 lead over the Canucks with just over eight minutes to go in the second period.
