NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Game 3: Bruins Try To Get Back In Series

The Boston Bruins, down 2-0 to the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup Finals, desperately need a victory Monday night in Game 3 to have any chance of winning the Cup -- or making this a competitive series.

The Bruins has lost two winnable games in heart-breaking fashion, and as our A.J. Manderichio explains they have done it to themselves. They are home tonight.

"You always have to find the bright side of things. The bright side of things is we're down to two teams, we're one of the two, and we're fortunate and happy to be here. For us to look at it any differently, and then to come today hanging our heads is ridiculous," said Bruins coach Claude Julien. "There's a lot of time to get back in this series. We believe in it. The only thing left is to go out there and show it. That's what we're getting ready for, is a big tilt tonight that we think is an important game for us and will hopefully turn this series around."

The schedule:

Game 1: Vancouver 1, Boston 0
Game 2: Vancouver 3, Boston 2 (OT), Vancouver leads series, 2-0
Game 3: Mon., June 6 -- at Boston, 8 p.m. ET (VERSUS, CBC)
Game 4: Wed., June 8 -- at Boston, 8 p.m. ET (VERSUS, CBC)
Game 5*: Fri., June 10 -- at Vancouver, 8 p.m. ET (NBC, CBC)
Game 6*: Mon., June 13 -- at Boston, 8 p.m. ET (NBC, CBC)
