The man who drew the most attention following the Vancouver Canucks Game 1 win over the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Finals was the man to draw first blood in Game 2. Alex Burrows, whose biting incident drew wide-spread attention on Wednesday, found the back of the net in the first period of Game 2, giving the Canucks the early advantage, 1-0. With the way this series has gone so far — Boston has struggled offensively and Roberto Luongo has been superb — this may be all Vancouver needs to secure its second win in a row.
The goal came on a first period power play after Zdeno Chara was sent to the box for interference. With just a few seconds to go, Burrows beat Tim Thomas, whose play has been superb, for the opening goal, putting the Canucks in an advantageous position on their home ice at Rogers Arena. Christopher Higgins and Sami Salo were credited with assists on the goal.
In the second period, the Canucks are on the board, leading the Boston Bruins, 1-0.
