Canucks repeat Game 1 to be within reach of the Cup

Post  Admin on Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:01 am

Maxim Lapierre scored on a carom off the back boards with 15:25 to play and Roberto Luongo stopped 31 shots in a stirring shutout after getting pulled from his last game as the Vancouver Canucks moved to the brink of their first NHL championship with a 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins in Game 5.

Luongo helped Vancouver take a 3-2 series lead, posting his fourth shutout of the playoffs and second of the Stanley Cup finals after giving up 12 goals in less than four periods during two blowout losses in Boston.

With the way the series has gone, the Bruins could force a Game 7 this Monday night in Boston or Vancouver (and all of Canada) could celebrate a Stanley Cup victory.
