The Boston Bruins posted a 4-0 shutout over the visiting Vancouver Canucks Wednesday to even the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup championship series at two games apiece.

The Bruins were still carrying the emotions from their 8-1 rout of the Canucks in game three that featured a vicious hit on Nathan Horton by the Canucks' Aaron Rome. The team staged a pregame tribute to Horton, who will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup finals with a severe concussion.

Horton's replacement, Rich Peverly, scored twice for Boston, with teammates Michael Ryder and Brad Marchand rounding out the scoring effort. Boston goalie Tim Thomas turned in another brilliant postseason performance, making 38 saves for his third shutout of the playoffs.

The best-of-seven series now heads back to Vancouver for game five on Friday.
