The game started off slowly. While there were a few chances either way, the first 10 minutes were rather sluggish. The Coyle line put together a couple of good shifts, and were rewarded later in the first period.
In the fifteen minutes (exaggeration) between the goal and puck drop, the Canucks decided to challenge the goal for offside.
After the review, the officials determined they had a good goal, sending the Bruins to the locker room with a 1-0 lead.
The second period was much like the first. There was not too much action for the first half, but the Bruins were able to tally another goal late.
The Bruins failed to score on a 5-on-3 early in the period, but two big penalty kills kept the Canucks off of the board through two periods of play.
The Bruins would continue their dominance in the third. David Krejci extended the Bruins lead to 3-0 on a 4-on-4.
And to top it off, Karson Kuhlman scored another late in the game to make the final score 4-0.
Both teams struggled on the powerplay tonight. The Canucks went 0-for-3 while the Bruins took six powerplays to score. The shots were also in the Bruins favor tonight.
