VANCOUVER — The Bruins’ overtime winning streak this playoff season came to an end at four games at Rogers Arena tonight.
Alexandre Burrows, who dodged as suspension earlier this week after he bit Bruins center Patrice Bergeron in Game 1, potted a wraparound 11 seconds into the extra session to lift Vancouver to a 3-2 win and a 2-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final.
Game 3 is Monday in Boston.
Burrows beat Zdeno Chara circling the net after an Andrew Ference giveaway in the neutral zone. Tim Thomas came out to challenge and wound up on his stomach. No one was able to get back to protect the front of the goal.
Here’s a glance at the rest of the box score:
•Mark Recchi scored one of Boston’s goals, which ended an eight-game point-less streak.
•His goal came on the power play, which scored for the first time since Game 6 of the Tampa Bay series. The Bruins were 1-for-3, so they’re now 1-for-9 in the Cup Final.
•Burrows scored two goals and assisted on the third with a great feed to Daniel Sedin. The goal tied the game with 10:23 left in regulation.
•The goaltenders were again spectacular with Thomas making 30 saves and Roberto Luongo 28.
•Recchi was credited with five hits.
