Deflated: Bruins Fall to Canucks, 4-3

In a game that saw the two teams combine for 107 penalty minutes in addition to two game misconducts, the Vancouver Canucks upended the Boston Bruins, 4-3.

The rematch of 2011 Stanley Cup finalists lived up to the hype, with physical play and mental errors taking center stage in an emotional game that saw a line brawl just four minutes in, but ultimately it was special teams that told the story.

Vancouver, owners of the NHL's best power play, went four for their eleven power play opportunities on the night while Boston, which had the seventh-best power play in the league coming in, whiffed on seven chances, including one with Tim Thomas pulled in the last 30 seconds of the game after Dan Hamhuis was sent off for delay of game, covering the puck with his hand in front of the Vancouver net.

It's tough to tell just who this game meant more to, but it's a sure thing that both teams are happy to put this one in their rear-view mirrors.
