That's exactly where I was going with my statement. It will come down to how good Luongo plays. He has been the difference in this series. Personally I think the Sharks and 'Nucks are the best two teams left. Niemi just hasn't played well enough.

If Luongo doesn't fall off his game and it's a Boston/Vancouver final, I see the Canucks taking it. Boston's basically riding on the fact right now that they've solved Tampa's system, and have found ways to open the game up, which exposed the goaltending.
