Bruins Smoke the Canucks ~!~

BOSTON (AP)—The tattered, kitschy Bruins jacket has been moving around the Boston locker room for the past few months, going to the most valuable player in every victory.

It belonged to Nathan Horton(notes) when he went down with a serious concussion two days earlier in the Stanley Cup finals. He showed up in the Bruins’ locker room Wednesday night, delighting his teammates by putting the jacket on Rich Peverley(notes).

That strange, old jacket bought on eBay has become the Bruins’ most valuable trophy.

After two dominant games in Boston, the Bruins are halfway to winning a bigger, shinier prize.

Tim Thomas(notes) made 38 saves in his third shutout of the playoffs, Peverley scored two goals after replacing Horton on Boston’s top line, and the Bruins emphatically evened the finals at two games apiece with a 4-0 victory over the foundering Vancouver Canucks in Game 4.

Timmy Thomas is really a tough old bird of a goalie. He ain't takin' none of the Canuck's @#$%& near his crease.

Boy, after game 2, I thought the Bruins were goners. This makes things much more interesting and I believe all of the remaining games are on broadcast TV, which is great for all 6 of us who don't have cable.

Bruins lost each of the first two by a goal and, arguably, either game could have been won by them. I agree the Canucks outskated them in both first two but have been stymied and hit hard by the Bs these last two.

Bruins forecheck has been dominant. Has turned the Canucks into a team scared of contact. Bruins have been putting on a master class in hitting and physical play and how it affects the other team.

My original prediction was Canucks in 6. Might have to say Bruins in 7 at this point.

Yes, I cannot imagine the Canucks completely folding and not winning one more game. But, if the Bs take this next game, it's going to be awfully hard for the Nux to come back to Boston and win one. So, yeah, it may take seven.

I really thought my sharks could have broken VAN just like BOS is doing now. It's now Boston's series to lose...

Thomas was a contributing factor for Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals. I'm surprised to find the B's keeping pace with the mighty Canucks at this point.

well, at this point they are not keeping pace - they're thrashing them side to side like an alligator would do to its prey.

however, I think the Nux will get back to their fast hockey style in the next game and it's going to be close again. Bs could have won those first two so let's see how they do now with a team that wants payback.
