VANCOUVER — After playing a penalty-free Game 7 against the Lightning to get into the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins and Canucks kept the penalty box attendants a little busier in Game 1 of the Cup Final on Wednesday.
The teams combined for 14 minor penalties, although they each went 0-for-6 on the power play as Vancouver squeaked out a 1-0 win with a goal in the final minute.
In Game 2 on Saturday, Dan O'Halloran and Kelly Sutherland will handle the refereeing duties. O'Halloran was one of the two refs who worked that penalty-free Game 7 against Tampa, but he also worked Game 4 of that series, which featured nine penalties as the Lightning rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win 5-3.
He also worked Game 3 against Montreal, a 4-2 Bruins win with 11 penalties called, and Game 3 of the Philadelphia series, a 5-1 Boston win with eight penalties called.
Sutherland worked Game 6 against Tampa, a 5-4 loss with 10 penalties and a 3-for-4 night on the power play by the Lightning. He also worked Game 2 of that series, a 6-5 Bruins win with 14 penalties, and Game 7 against Montreal, which the Bruins won 4-3 in overtime.
The linesmen for Game 2 will be Jay Sharrers and Jean Morin.
