Canucks Vs. Bruins Score: Patrice Bergeron Scores Short-Handed; Boston Leads 3-0

Any hope the Vancouver Canucks had in Game 7 just went out the window as the Boston Bruins created a short-handed goal to take a 3-0 lead. Patrice Bergeron got loose on a breakaway, and as he went skidding to the ice, he somehow found a way to sneak the puck past Roberto Luongo. With the 3-0 lead, Boston is firmly in control of Game 7, and has Vancouver all but dead in these Stanley Cup Finals.

The goal was controversial, though: Bergeron appeared to hit Luongo before the puck crossed the line, and also appeared to tap the puck in with his hand. After review, the goal was confirmed, and Boston somehow turn what should've been a positive power play for Vancouver into a negative. The puck to a funny bounce to find his stick in the first, as well, hitting a stachion and somehow landing at Bergeron's feet at center-ice with nobody in front of him.

With just a minute to go in the second period, the Boston Bruins hold a 3-0 lead over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. With Tim Thomas in net, the Bruins should feel good, and the task at-hand for the Canucks is a hefty one.
