They just mentioned on TSN that this will be the biggest distance between 2 SCF opponent cities in history.

3000+ miles

Canucks also played Rangers and Islanders in the finals, which would be pretty close to same distance. Vancouver lost both of those series.

How do the Bruins match up against the Canucks first line? Do they swap Rex and Pevs and send out Marchand-Bergeron-Peverley against the Sedins and Burrows? Or will we see them up against Kesler and Raymond's line? One would have to assume Chara and Seids will line up against the twins.

It's the Easternmost team in the league vs. the second Westernmost.

Edit: Apparently San Jose is a little more West than VAN. Oh well, it's still pretty cool.

First of all, New England is significantly more eastern than Florida. Second, even if you thought Florida jutted out further to the east, Miami, where the Panthers play, is more east in the state than Tampa. Toronto and Pittsburgh are basically in line with Tampa.

This franchise has come so far from where it was. 11 years ago we traded Bourque because it was his best chance of winning a cup. PC has done a wonderful job of turning this franchise around.

We beat them once this year and looked good doing it. I have faith in my team. Let them be cocky. Let them think they're just gonna steam roll us. They're in for an awakening. Our boys will be out for blood. No question about it, Bruins in 6.


Buuuuuut. That being said, my love for Bieska holds no boundaries though. Been wanting him on the B's for 2 years now.

His sister's winning streak continues. He better send her to Vancouver.

And Bruins in 6.

LKH with Chara and Seidenberg against the Sedins. Chara disrupts the cycle and LKH makes the Sedins play the whole night in their own zone.

The easiest way to control the Sedins at ES is make them play in their own end. They're not especially good at disrupting the cycle to begin with so I have a feeling LKH will really wear them down.

I never knew Mister Rogers was so big up in Canada

Bridgestone Spring Classic?

Just kidding, no Canadian teams would be allowed to play in such an event and there must be one team from the state of Pennsylvania playing.
