Sven Baertschi’s Goal Gives Canucks Early Lead Over Bruins (Video)

Sven Baertschi is finally showing a bit of the promise the Calgary Flames hoped he would when they took him in the first round in 2011.

The Vancouver Canucks forward scored his ninth goal of the season, this time putting Vancouver ahead of the Boston Bruins quickly in the first period of Thursday’s game.

NESN’s Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley broke down the play in the Berkshire Bank Exciting Rewind. Check it out in the video above.
