Canucks.

There was really only one team in the Eastern Conference with a combination of both adequate firepower in the event of a high-scoring game and enough defense to potentially neutralize an opponent's firepower, but it lost much of its firepower the moment its two best players were lost for the season to injuries. Once that happened, I knew that the eventual Stanley Cup champions were coming from the Western Conference.

I'll say Canucks in 6. Wouldn't be surprised to see a split in the first 2 games followed by a split in the next 2 then Canucks win both game 5 and 6.

After last nights game, I wouldn't be suprised to see a Canucks sweep.

You mean a game where sendins where off the scoring sheet, Boston generated a ton of offense, shut down their PP, and played well in net? That was anyone’s game, and arguably boston played better in the first 40. Remember, they are playing at 11pm while Vancouver was playing at 8pm. That makes a difference in ice hockey.

Not making predictions on this series. Its close. Boston matches up well against the canuks, but the canuks are deep and strong in every category. I’d go as far to say Boston is underdogs. If they had Senguin a few years from now, they’d be much more dangerous up front. Its amazing what a few years will do to a player - look at Kesler…

What game were you watching??
I saw Vancouver dominate. It was like shooting fish in a barrell !!
Unfortunately they could only shoot one fish with 19 seconds left. Vancouver should have won 3 or 4-0.

Bruins outshot Vancouver and kept the league’s best PP to 0 goals. Likewise they generated many scoring chances and won in the faceoff category as well. It was a close game no doubt about it, and Vancouver won on a play that was about as close to offsides as you’ll see these days. If I was coaching Boston, I wouldn’t change a thing. That game was well played and they will get rewarded with goals.

Again, not making a prediction. Both teams can win it.

11pm vs. 8pm dude? The Canucks had the stranger start time, 500p, if you want to be that technical.....

Actually the Vancouver games are being played at 5 pm Pacific time, (8 pm Eastern) so your excuse for Boston doesn't quite make it...I'm not concerned with the Sedins being pointless in that game...They still did some pretty amazing stuff. There is no way Boston will hold them off the score board. All four Vancouver lines are scoring threats for Boston, and I doubt that they will be able to contain them.
