Canucks and Beyond

Canucks at Bruins, 5pm.
I’m afraid I’m sticking with my original series prediction of 7 games, with the Canucks coming out on top in the end. This is a home-ice-advantage series if every there was one, and while I feel optimistic about the end result, tonight is going to be a tough one to pull out. Of course, maybe the lessons learned against Chicago, Nashville and San Jose will pay off and the Canucks will find that extra gear that allows them to put an end to this series tonight. That would certainly be nice, because a game 7 in this series will probably come down to a single ridiculous bounce…
Which would make for one seriously scary hockey game to watch.
P.S. The sports producer at Boston.com hung out in Vancouver after game 5, talking to Vancouverites to find out what they know about Boston, as well as to explain the Canadian obsession with hockey. Here’s the video of his encounters below.
Enjoy the game everyone.
And whatever happens, this has been one hell of a series, with all its highs and lows. People often expect their teams to be perfect all the time, but I’m not one of them. For one thing, that doesn’t sound like very entertaining hockey. And for another… well, it’s the lows that make the highs so awesome.
