With a win tonight in Boston, the Vancouver Canucks can win the Stanley Cup for the first-time in their 40-year history. But it won’t be easy…the Bruins hammered the Canucks by a combined score of 12-1 in games 3 and 4.
The Canucks can look to the Dallas Mavericks for inspiration; the Mavs won their first-ever NBA title in franchise history by beating the Miami Heat in game 6…on the road. Sound familiar? If the Canucks do win, I hope their post-game celebration is a bit more memorable and exciting than the Mavs’ was.
I also touch on the contenders for the Conn Smythe trophy, including Luongo, both Sedins, Kesler, Bieksa, and Tim Thomas.
I’m looking forward to what could possibly be the most historic night in Vancouver Canucks history! Go Canucks Go…bring the cup home!
