NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Boston Beats Vancouver, 5-2, Forces Game 7

Lord Stanley's Cup was in the building Monday night, but the Boston Bruins made sure the Vancouver Canucks would not be hoisting it at the TD Garden. The Boston Bruins left little doubt Monday night that there would be a Game 7 by scoring four goals before Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals was 12 minutes old and winning, 5-2.

Boston chased Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo with three quick goals, then added one in the first period against backup Cory Schneider. This is the second time in the series Luongo has been pulled from a game.

Boston goalie Tim Thomas made 36 saves.

Game 7 will be Wednesday night in Vancouver (8 p.m., NBC). The Canucks have won all three games in Vancouver during the Finals.
