Canucks vs. Bruins Scoring Chances - Game 3

If you won't bite it, smell the finger.

In a game that was more Slapshot than Cup Final, I don't know that we can glean much from the scoring chances.  Instead of spending 70-75% of the game at even strength, the Bruins and Canucks spent 60% of the game at even strength - 36:18.

Boston - Best and Worst

Top ES Forward:  Milan Lucic, Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly, Mark Recchi, Patrice Bergeron, Rich Peverley, Michael Ryder +1

Bottom ES Forward:  Shawn Thornton -3

Top ES Defenseman:  Johnny Boychuk +2

Bottom ES Defenseman:  Dennis Seidenberg  -5

Don Cherry lauds Shawn Thornton, of course, as the reason for the win.  Unfortunately, the only thing Thornton did was get ejected.  One positive with Thornton on the ice was Peverley playing on the third line rather than the fourth.  Kelly and Ryder were both very good.  If I were Julien, I'd think long and hard about moving Peverley into Horton's spot in the lineup and putting Seguin back on the third line with Kelley and Ryder.  Peverley played the toughs in Atlanta and can handle the minutes - Seguin will one day.

Sami Salo was +1 in this game and it wasn't a fluke.  He was +5 in scoring chances and the only dude to win his battle convincingly.
