The Bruins and Canucks are staying even keeled when it comes to their Saturday matchup.
Canucks forward Daniel Sedin told reporters “We’re going to win Game 7″ after Vancouver’s Game 6 loss in Boston.
The Vancouver Canucks will have Roberto Luongo back in net for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Bruins goalie Tim Thomas plays out of the net, and the Canucks do not like it.
Michael Ryder and Keith Ballard both realize the Stanley Cup finals have reached a tipping point, and they’ve each got a chance to push the series in their club’s favor.
After word of Aaron Rome’s four-game suspension for his hit on Bruins forward Nathan Horton came down Tuesday, the Canucks vocally rushed to their teammates defense.
Although the Boston Bruins realize they returned home from Vancouver with a daunting series deficit in the Stanley Cup finals, they already know an 0-2 hole isn’t necessarily a grave.
Daniel Sedin absently scratched his red playoff beard, thinking back on a decade of struggle and setbacks before the Vancouver Canucks reached the Stanley Cup finals against Boston.
The Canucks finally have an opponent for next week’s Stanley Cup final, though the Boston Bruins are hardly a familiar foe.
