The Bruins may be a better team than the Canucks 5-on-5 this season. But after Saturday's game, we'll never know.
The 102 penalty minutes dished out made sure of that, along with the two game misconducts given to Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand that may warrant more discipline from the league office.
The Canucks, to their credit, took advantage of their time with more guys on the ice, scoring four power-play goals to beat the Bruins 4-3 in an emotional Stanley Cup Final rematch that lived up to the hype.
NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is awarding the Canucks' power play the Roberto Luongo-inspired "Missing Man" player of the game after this one, and he's already looking ahead to when the B's can get back on the ice and back in the wins column.
