VANCOUVER The Bruins got the blood flowing after their cross-country flight from Boston to British Columbia on Monday afternoon, and put in a full day Tuesday afternoon at the Rogers Centre home of the Canucks.Rich Peverley once again donned the Gold jersey and skated with the Patrice BergeronMark RecchiBrad Marchand line, and Shawn Thornton took his rightful place on the Merlot line with Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille. The lines were as follows:
Paille-Campbell-ThorntonSo the Bruins lines looked exactly as they did at the end of the Tampa Bay Lightning series, and the power play once again had a familiar look as well.Zdeno Chara was camped down low near the net with Nathan Horton and David Krejci on the first power play unit, and Tomas Kaberle and Dennis Seidenberg manned the two point positions. Mark Recchi, Rich Peverley, Michael Ryder, Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic all seeing time on the second power play unit along with Andrew Ference and Patrice Bergeron at the point spots, so its anybodys guess who takes the ice on Wednesday night.The Bs PP will need more juice than the 8.2 percent success rate that got them through the first three rounds of the playoffs if theyre going to take down a Canucks team that led the NHL in goals scored and goals against in a magically dominant regular season.
