Bruins bust Canucks open in Game 3, win 8-1

Nathan Horton's injury spurred the Bruins to a blowout victory in Game 3.

Nathan Horton went down with a concussion and was knocked out after a late hit from Aaron Rome. After that, the Boston Bruins were all serious. Boston scored 4 goals in the second period and 4 more in the third after a scoreless first period to blow out the visiting Vancouver Canucks at TD Garden 8-1. Tim Thomas recovered from his mental mistake that cost Boston Game 2 in Vancouver and saved 40 shots, the only goal allowed was to Jannik Hansen with 6:07 remaining in the game. Roberto Luongo was good early on, but was knocked around and allowed 8 goals and saved 30 shots. With the blowout victory, the Bruins trail the Canucks 2-1 in the series with Game 4 Wednesday night in Boston. After the game it was announced that Horton would miss the remainder of the playoffs. Aaron Rome was suspended 4 games, meaning he is out for the rest of the series. In a very physical game, Daniel Sedin was issued a 10-minute misconduct and brother Henrik was shoved down by Thomas, and the crowd erupted into cheers. There were also many fingers in front of faces after a controversial situation in Game 1 when Alex Burrows appeared to bite Patrice Bergeron, but got away with it. The bite has been a constant theme of the first three games of this series. The goal scorers in order for Boston were Andrew Ference, Mark Recchi, Brad Marchand, David Krejci, Daniel Paille, Recchi, Chris Kelly, and Michael Ryder. The video of the hit on Horton by Rome is below.

    That hit could cost Canucks series! Boston looks determined to make them pay!

    • it’s a classic show of a complete U-Turn. The Bruins were just sparked by that injury, I’m not sure they’d be in this position tied 2-2 WITH Horton. Crazy things happen.
