Bruins Vs. Canucks Score: Rich Peverley Adds A Second Goal And The Rout Is On

In two games, or a little less than five periods so far, the Boston Bruins have become an offensive juggernaut, netting 12 goals against the Vancouver Canucks spanning Game 3 and Game 4. In the third period, it's all but over in Boston as the Bruins found the net a fourth time as Rich Peverley scored his second goal of the game. With the goal, Roberto Luongo headed to the bench, ending his night as Vancouver opted to give him some rest in favor of Cory Schneider.

David Krejci and Johnny Boychuk were credited with assists on Peverley's goal, which came on a deflection right in front of the net. The puck appeared to hit Peverley's leg as he barreled down on Luongo, with the deflection squeezing just past the Canucks net-minder and in for the goal. It was Peverley's second of the game.

Boston leads Game 4, 4-0, and has been superb all game-long, putting Luongo under fire with shots on goal from every angle. While the Canucks have the quantity, and have peppered Tim Thomas, Boston has the quality, finding the back of the net four times on 24 shots. Thomas is still perfect and has saved all 26 shots he's seen on target.

It's all but over in Boston and, barring a miracle, the Bruins will even the series at two games apiece.
