It's hard to imagine a Stanley Cup Finals game with more plot lines than Saturday's game two between the Bruins and the Canucks. Between Manny's return to action, the Bruins PP finally finding the twine, and Alex Burrows' epic heel turn, there was also a wildly entertaining game of hockey played. History, and the fans of both teams, will only remember how the game ended - but that obscures the fact that through 45 minutes of play - the Boston Bruins were taking it to the Canucks, and comfortably carrying the play.

Game Day Recon: Stanley Cup Final Game 2 - Bruins @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks left it to dying seconds of Game 1 before potting the game-winning goal. The only goal, in fact. In Game 2, I'm sure both the Canucks and Bruins will be doing every thing they can to get more than 1 goal to win the game.
And it all starts with both teams' dreadful power play.

Tim Thomas is beating teams single-handedly.

Game Day Recon: Stanley Cup Final Game 1 - Bruins @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks certainly like dramatics. And apparently so does Raffi Torres.
With the final ticks of the play clock inching the game ever closer to overtime, Torres finally slipped one past the goalie. And that honestly isn't meant as any sort of euphamism.
