Alex Burrows quick OT goal gives Vancouver Canucks 2-0 series lead over Boston Bruins

Vancouver Canucks took a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals on Monday thanks to the brilliance of Alex Burrows stunning goal right off the overtime faceoff.

Burrows circled the net and scored a stunning goal right off the overtime faceoff, capping a three-point night and ending the Canucks' 3-2 win in Game 2 Saturday night with the second fastest overtime goal in NHL playoff and finals history - timed at just 11 seconds into OT.

Only four teams have rallied from an 0-2 series deficit to win the Stanley Cup finals in 46 tries, although it has happened recently when Sidney Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins did it against Detroit in 2009.
