BOSTON (AP) - One game to go for the Boston Bruins in their quest for a Stanley Cup.

And maybe one game to go for Mark Recchi in a career that could put him in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The 43-year-old Bruins forward had three assists on Monday night to help Boston beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.

The series returns to Vancouver for a decisive seventh game on Wednesday night.

That could be it for Recchi, who has said he would retire if the Bruins won it all.

Recchi already has won the Stanley Cup twice, with Pittsburgh in 1991 and again with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006.
