ALEX BURROWS OVERTIME GOAL

Alex Burrows scored 11 seconds into overtime to put the Canucks up 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals, now headed to Boston. (Scroll down for video.)

There was some question before the game if Burrows would even play, but the NHL decided against a suspension after he allegedly bit Patrice Bergeron in Game 1.

Burrows faked a shot on Tim Thomas and maneuvered a wraparound for the goal, getting around Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and sliding the puck into an empty net.

The Canucks also won Game 1 in dramatic fashion, scoring with 18 seconds left in regulation.
