VANCOUVER - Like his teammates Mark Recchi had little reason to laugh.

But the veteran forward did let out a chuckle when informed that, at 43 years, 123 days, he had become the oldest player to score a goal in a Stanley Cup final game.

“That’s because I’ve been around so long,” he said.

Recchi will need all of his veteran experience and savvy to convince his Boston Bruins to keep their heads up after a pair of staggering defeats in the Stanley Cup final including a 3-2 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks in Game 2 on Saturday night.

But he’s certainly going to try.

“We are going home where the city is alive,” he said. “We played a couple of good road games, but just had spurts where we faltered. In the end, it cost us.

“This team has been through a lot. We can do this. But it will have to come through hard work.”
