BOSTON — The Bruins gave the Vancouver Canucks and their league-leading power play 11 man-advantage opportunities Saturday.
And the Canucks didn’t let many of those chances go to waste.
Vancouver scored four power-play goals, including two during a five-minute major on Brad Marchand, to win the Stanley Cup Final at the TD Garden, 4-3.
The Bruins’ four-game home-ice winning streak ended.
Cody Hodgson scored what proved to be the game-winner with a slap shot that beat Tim Thomas (32 saves) 1:09 into the third period. At the time the goal put the Canucks up 4-3.
The game featured 107 penalty minutes, including a scrum that resulted in a Milan Lucic ejection for joining an altercation off the bench. Marchand earned a game misconduct along with his five-minute major for clipping Vancouver defenseman Sami Salo with 1:13 left in the second period.
Boston will be back in action Tuesday against Winnipeg.
