Bruins 2 Canucks' dead offence 0

The Canucks ran into another hot goaltender tonight in Tim Thomas, and didn't capitalize on their chances, losing another road game.
This was another heart breaker. The Canucks shot themselves in the foot early, getting into penalty trouble, and taking 6 penalties in the 1st period to Boston's 2. Patrice Bergeron and Glenn Murray both scored PP goals in the 1st and made them pay.
From that point, until the end of the game, the Canucks outshot the Bruins 27-6. Many of the shots were lackluster, but when they were quality chances, Thomas stood his ground, and was terrific.
The Bruins had zero shots in the 3rd period.
The Sedins looked out of sync and uninterested. They had their ice time cut back to 16.5 minutes.
Markus Naslund was equally crappy.

Zanstorm's 3 stars:

1. Tim Thomas
2. Patrice Bergeron
3. Glenn Murray

Yes, Jan Bulis was decent tonight, so I will continue to cut him some slack.

...Crap crap crap crap crap...their poor play has reduced my vocabulary to that single word. Depending on how they play tonight I may begin losing letters. You'll see me here tomorrow morning going "cra cra cra"....

The Bruins had *no* shots on goal in the 3rd period?? Just think, the Canucks may have won if the Bruins also had zero shots on goal in the 1st and 2nd periods too! Oh, wait, no they wouldn't have...it would have just been a tie!

(zing!)

Ah man, the brutha speaks truth. I can't even retaliate!
I think the Bruins could have shown some sympathy and scored on their own net.....
