* The Bruins have outscored the Canucks 12-1 in the last two games. According to Elias, that is the largest goal differential in a two-game span since the NHL took control of the Stanley Cup Finals in 1927.

* After allowing eight goals in Game 3 -- which according to Elias tied the most goals allowed by a goalie in the Stanley Cup Finals during the expansion era -- Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo allowed four goals in Game 4 before being pulled in the third period. It marked the third time this postseason Luongo had been pulled from a game. He has now allowed 12 goals on 58 shots in Games 3 and 4 after allowing two goals on 66 shots in Games 1 and 2 (shutout in Game 1).

* The Bruins had no luck on the stick side in the first two games of the series but have scored five goals in that direction in the last two games. Wednesday, Peverley’s stick-side goal was the last that Luongo allowed before being pulled with 16:11 to play.

* Entering the finals, it was the Bruins power play that was struggling. But in this series it's been the Canucks who have struggled take advantage of the man advantage. They are now 0-for-13 on the power play in the last two games, and just 1-for-21 for the series.
