BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins know their hopes of getting back to Vancouver and a chance to win the Stanley Cup ride largely on how they play in front of the Canucks' net.

Get traffic in front of goalie Roberto Luongo and start launching pucks his way. It's been a simple formula that helped the Bruins go 2-0 at home in the Stanley Cup Final, but hasn't translated north of the border.

Luongo has been a stalwart at home but suspect on the road in the series, which Vancouver leads 3-2 entering Game 6 Monday night in Boston.

Boston forward Gregory Campbell says Luongo can't stop the puck if he can't see it, so the Bruins want to keep up the pressure in front and force a Game 7.
