Eleven seconds.

That’s how long it took the Canucks to win Game 2 in overtime on Saturday night, and that’s how long it took Boston to break a scoreless tie at the start of the second period in Game 3.

The Bruins won the faceoff to start the period and brought it into the Vancouver zone, and the puck came around to Andrew Ference at the point. His high slapshot beat Roberto Luongo and gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead.

Give the assists to Rich Peverley and David Krejci.

The time: 11 seconds into the second.

Bruins coach Claude Julien told the TV broadcast that he had no other information on Horton, who is in the playoffs for the first time in his NHL career.

“It’s a tough thing to swallow right now,” Julien said. “Our spirits are OK. I heard guys saying, ‘Let’s do it for Horty.’ So we’re good to go.”
