Big Blowout in Boston

8-1 was the final score tonight, more goals than the last two games combined. Boston scored four goals in the second period to lead 5-1 going into the second. Bostons special teams were on fire tonight, scoring two shorthanded and powerplay goals. They also had stellar defense, thanks to Tim Thomas.

"He never ceases to amaze me," saidBrad Marchand about Thomas' play after the victory. Thomas had a 40 save night, and also a big hit on Henrik Sedin halway through the third. Luongo only made 30 saves on 38 shots, and wasn't looking as sharp as he did the previous two games. But not everything went well for the Bruins tonight. Nathan Horton was sent away to the hospital on a stretcher early in the first period, on a questionable hit by Canucks defenseman A. Rome. He appeared to be knocked unconcious, as his eyes rolled back in his head as he lay on the ice. More news is yet to be announced on his status. One thing's for sure, game 4 will be an aggresive game, considering there were several game misconducts late in the game.
