Bure Leads Canucks Past Leafs

The, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)

Celebrating their first home game in 10 days, the Vancouver Canucks gained the upper hand in the Western Conference final by beating the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0 Friday night.

Pavel Bure, known as the "Russian Rocket," scored twice for the Canucks who took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with the next two games in Vancouver on Sunday and Tuesday.

The game deteriorated into an ugly brawl at 16:50 of the third period following a check by Vancouver wing Tim Hunter on Doug Gilmour of the Leafs. Several fights broke out and the altercation continued after the fiesty Gilmour went after Cliff Ronning, the smallest Vancouver player.

Referee Andy van Hellemond sent both teams to the dressing room after fans littered the ice with debris, including boxing gloves and a dead fish.

Emotions spilled over into the press box when George McPhee, vice-president of hockey operations for the Canucks, smashed a window, cutting a statistician.

When the teams returned 10 minutes later, four players were ejected, including Gilmour.

Vancouver goalkeeper Kirk McLean stopped 29 shots for his third shutout of the playoffs.

Greg Adams scored in the second period and Martin Gelinas scored the last Vancouver goal in the game's final minute when Toronto was two men short.

The victory was the fourth in seven playoff games for the Canucks, who are a remarkable 6-2 on the road after splitting two games at Toronto earlier in the week.
