BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins blitzed the Vancouver Canucks with four goals in a four-minute span, driving goalie Roberto Luongo from the game and taking a 4-0 lead after the first period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals on Monday night.
Facing elimination in the best-of-seven series, the Bruins came out aggressively after losing 1-0 in Game 5 on Friday night.
They scored three goals on eight shots against Luongo and another on the second shot against Cory Schneider. The four goals in 4:14 set a Stanley Cup record, breaking the old mark of four in 5:29 by the Montreal Canadiens against the Detroit Red Wings on March 31, 1956.
The Bruins got four goals in a period for the third time in the series.
