Bruins facing deep deficit as Cup finals move east

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - The Boston Bruins couldn't have enjoyed the scene late Saturday night while their team bus crawled through the raucous street party that consumed downtown Vancouver after the Canucks moved halfway to their first NHL title.

Maybe the Stanley Cup finals' move to the East Coast will finally give the Bruins something to celebrate.

With Game 3 looming Monday night at TD Garden after a quick cross-continent trip Sunday, the Bruins realize the jam they brought back from Canada isn't sweet.

Only four teams have rallied from an 0-2 finals deficit in 46 tries. Boston must win four of the next five games to beat the Canucks, the NHL's best regular-season team and the winner of seven of their past eight playoff games.
