The Canucks starter, who inexplicably started a media firestorm after a strong Game 5 performance with his critique of rival goaltender Tim Thomas, was pulled at the 8:35 mark of the first period after surrendering three goals on eight shots.
Luongo sabotaged his team's early efforts by allowing Brad Marchand's bad-angle wrister to go over his glove, short side, at the 5:31 mark of the first period. Then, just 35 seconds later, Milan Lucic's shot from the left circle squeaked through Luongo.
BOSTON -- Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond was taken to the hospital following a hit by Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk during the opening minute of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden.
The Canucks did not disclose the injury but said Raymond is being evaluated.
Raymond and Boychuk became tangled behind the Bruins net with the Canucks on the attack. Raymond was spun around and went back-first into the boards and crumpled to the ice. He stayed down for nearly 5 minutes as trainers attended to him.
"Even him winning the Olympic gold wasn't good enough. That's too bad. People in that dressing room, we know that he's a winner. He's done it on every stage before and if it happens (Monday), I hope people can stop criticizing him."
-- Henrik Sedin

Very happy that old guy finally scored. It was great. You see the excitement on his face. I remember when I scored my first goal and it's just such a great feeling. Anytime you can help contribute to a team win it's a lot of fun.
