Stanley Cup Finals, Game 7: Second-Period Score -- Boston 3, Vancouver 0

The Boston Bruins scored a pair of second-period goals Wednesday to push their lead over the Vancouver Canucks to 3-0 in Game 7 of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup finals.

At the 12:13 mark of the second period Boston’s Brad Marchands scored on a wrap-around shot. Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo blocked the shot initially, but could not control it and it trickled into the net.

At the 17:35 mark the Bruins scored a short-handed goal to push their advantage to 3-0. Patrice Bergeron of Boston grabbed a bouncing puck, broke in on Luongo and fired a shot while being dragged down from behind. Bergeron collided with the goalkeeper and the puck wound up in the net. Had Bergeron not scored, a penalty would have been called on the Canucks.

Vancouver has 21 shots on goal to Boston’s 13. The Canucks did get a power play opportunity when Boston’s Zdeno Chara was called for interference. Vancouver could not take advantage and wound up surrendering the short-handed goal.
