Boston Bruins @ Vancouver Canucks

Bruins   Canucks
15 Wins 15
9 Losses 9
0 OTL 2
3.21 (5th) Goals/Game 2.42 (14th)
2.21 (1st) Goals Against/Game 2.71 (8th)
11.5% (14th) PP 20.9% (6th)
84% (6th) PK 80.6% (9th)

Fast Facts

> Remember This Hour: Their goalie has been shellacked twice this series, the defense is undermanned and injured, their top line isn't producing, their second line lost a winger to go along with their injured pivot, their third line is leading them in scoring and Interpol is searching for their power play. Then again, it's a game seven so anything goes. Vigneault has the last change and that may be all that's needed to back up Daniel's (unfortunate?) prediction of a game seven win. There are whispers of Hamhuis returning or even Baumgartner stepping in tonight, but the fact is the defense will need a gem. Lastly, fair or not, tonight will define Roberto Luongo. No room for error, no excuses, no tomorrow.

> Remember This Hour: The Conn Smythe has already been awarded to their goaltender, the defense refuses to commit any mistakes, they're getting balanced scoring from all lines and have every right to have a bit of swagger heading into tonight. Then again, it's a game seven so anything goes. As in the previous three games in Vancouver, how Julien manages Chara/Seidenberg will be vital. He learned the hard way splitting them up - and allowing the Sedins to get at Boychuk or Ference - hasn't worked well. Then again if the Bruins load up the scoreboard early it won't matter. No room for error, no excuses, no tomorrow.

> Impress Your Friends With Knowledge!: The last three Canadian teams to reach a game 7 in the Stanley Cup have all (a) been from the Northwest Division and (b) lost. Here's hoping that trend ends tonight.

Looks like this one isn't going to end well for you guys.

The difference was the Sedin-Bergeron match-up. Boston's shut down line beat up your scoring line. Well, that and Louongo continue being mediocre.

Quite the season for VAN. Too bad it ended like this.

The only consolation is...you should be just as good next year.

Unfortunately for them my bet would be on Pittsburgh next year, operating under the assumption that Malkin and Crosby are both in playing shape.

Are you quite done dude? I hope you're a Flames fan because you're over the top behavior would be unacceptable in the Oilers Nation. Say your bit then shut the F up!

Glad the Bruins won the cup so the canucks fans will still be stubborn and annoyed at the world.

Class act after the game to, congrat on making your team and city look like a bunch of idiots.

Awful game. 4-0? Where was the last two Art Ross winners at for game 7? Hello it was game 7. Remember no game 8. Pathetic performance for many of the Nuck players. Brad Marchand, Mark Recchi, Tim Thomas,and so on and so forth. They stepped up when they were asked. The better "team" won. The post game "celebration/riot" was not indicative of the 99.9% of Vancouver fans and Vancouverites. My God who brings an accelerant to what was suppose to be a celebration. Same anarchists who find opportunity in the G8 and G20 meetings.Props to the guy who tried to prevent the looting of the Bay. The Bay should find the guy and give him a reward. To the guys ho attacked him I hope your proud of yourselves. 20-1 thats real manly. May your manhood shrivel up and rot from syphillis you sons of a dog. I for one see this for what it was. A bunch of punks who regardless of outcome were intent on causing havoc and destruction. Its over. Clean up. Cry in your tea. And better luck next year. Thanks for giving all Canadians some springtime hope.

I'm thinking this version of the Canorcs might get one more shot at that silver mug. Awfully hard to get back there, but its not like the 06 Oilers team that fell apart right after, they should still have most pieces in place to make another run. Still, they will have a hard time getting by Destroit and Chi-town in the west, and Pitts/Bos in the east. The long and winding road ahead...

I really think the city of Vancouver and the good fans there deserve a cup. Just not when your team is so arrogant, your coach is arrogant, your GM is arrogant, and some of your fans are arrogant. Learn some humility, and you'll get there. And no diving and embellishing, you're embarrassing Canada.

Thanks Canucks fans, for giving me or anyone else no reason to ever explain to anyone again why you suck so much.

You did a great job of it yourselves, congrats.

It's too bad none of you actually read this board.
