Canucks 1, Bruins 0

Lone goal pushes Bruins to brink of elimination

Canucks net ricochet goal in 1-0 victory

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Compared to the US greenback, the Canadian dollar is the strongest it has been in years. Just ask the Bruins. They’ve played three times here in the last 10 days, only to find their game has little currency once beyond the cozy confines of the Causeway Street Vault.

And last night, they went bankrupt for a second time, a 1-0 loss to the Canucks, cut down on Max Lapierre’s goal — set up by a ricochet off the rear boards — with 4:35 gone in the third period. The win gave the Canucks a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final and they now have two cracks at landing the first championship in the franchise’s 40-year-history. The first will be Monday night, Game 6, at the Garden.
