CANUCKS TAKE GAME 1 AND HAND THE BRUINS A HEARTBREAKING LOSS
Thu, 02 Jun 2011 05:22 PM EDT

After 59 and a half minutes of the Stanley Cup finals opener, the high-flying Canucks were deeply disturbed. First of all the superstar Sedin twins couldn’t penetrate Boston’s imposing defense, and Vancouver’s vaunted power play was harmless. Vegas odds.

But Raffi Torres and Jannik Hansen had the final word and Vancouver’s third-line wings only required a few seconds to nail the only goal of the game that gave the Canucks the victory in their chase for their first Stanley Cup championship.

Torres netted after a brilliant assist from Hansen with less than 20 seconds left to play, and Vancouver took the heartbreaking win over Boston Bruins 1-0 on Wednesday night. Torres ran past Bruins’ Tim Thomas to score the latest go-ahead goal in a finals game since 1992, when Mario Lemieux connected with 13 seconds left in Pittsburgh’s series-opening win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Goalie Roberto Luongo made 36 saves in his third shutout of the for the Canucks, but Thomas matched him until Torres — the only Vancouver skater with preceding finals familiarity — slipped through the Bruins’ defense-line for an jaw-opening goal that released a fierce celebration at Rogers Arena. Betting lines.

Fun fact of the day: Vancouver has won all four series openers in its postseason, with Luongo also posting shutouts against Chicago and Nashville. Sports scores.

Game 2 is Saturday night in Vancouver.
