Bruins struggle again on power play

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - The Boston Bruins came into the Stanley Cup finals answering questions about an inept power play and inability to score.

They're facing them again after failing to covert four early chances with the man advantage, and failing to cash in against Roberto Luongo in a 1-0 loss in Game 5 on Friday night.

Boston had three power-play chances in the first period, and got another on a questionable call early in the second. But other than forcing a couple great saves on consecutive chances off Milan Lucic's deflection and Patrice Bergeron alone in the slot on the rebound, the Bruins barely tested Luongo.

Considering they beat the Canucks goalie 12 times the last two games in Boston, and chased him from the third period of Game 4, they may regret it.
