Any idea when game 1 of the final is? Hope it is not until Tuesday, as I have to leave town until then.
Vancouver has never had it easy but rather it has been how hard we had it to get here. the players we have now that this could be their only chance the have to win it and guys like Trevor Lindon and Jeremy Roenick were awsome players and never got to hoist the cup but came so close

I'm a Habs Fan, so I can't believe I'm saying this, but rooting big time for Boston, to win game 7. A Tampa Bay, Vancouver final, while it would be huge ratings for Canadian TV, might be lucky to get a 2 rating in the USA and will be mocked by the mainstream media. If Boston is in it, seeing how they are an original 6 team with a nationwide following, that should salvage the ratings in the states, to some degree. (similar to ratings when the Canucks played the Rangers)...

I agree besides Tampa Bay area I dont think anybody even knows they have a team at least with Boston they will have a nation wide following

Great win for vancouver, tough one for the Sharks. Unfortunate missed icing call (if it was icing), but they had the empty net and overtimes to force a game 6. Freakish bounce off the glass, but good shot by Bieska to just sneak it by. Luongo was impressive in net and seems to be playing well enough since the near meltdown against Chicago; if he keeps his consistency, Vancouver will be tough to beat.

As for the B's and Bolts, I have not clue who's going to win as they are evenly matched and don't care either way but if i had to pic, i'm rooting for the Bolts and Stevie Y!

You would be very wrong in thinking that about people in Tampa.
