Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows scored the winning goal in overtime to give his team a 2-0 series lead over the Boston Bruins, all in 11 seconds. The speedy forward skated past the Bruins defense off of the first faceoff, then circled behind the net for the wraparound goal in the 3-2 victory. The goal was the second quickest overtime goal in Stanley Cup Finals history. The quickest was scored in 9 seconds by Montreal's Brian Skrudland in 1986.
Burrows overcame two challenges to score the winning goal. The first was Boston's huge 6 foot 9 defenseman Zdeno Chara, whom Burrows had to out skate behind the net, and second was getting goalie Tim Thomas out of position in order to complete the wraparound goal. Burrows finished the game with 2 goals and silenced critics after a contraversial biting penalty in game 1.
The goal puts Vancouver up 2-0 heading to Boston for game 3. The odds are against Boston as only 4 teams have overcome an 0-2 game hole in the past 46 Stanley Cup Finals series.
