Boston has to play like there down 1 goal, I hope Bobby Orr or Recchi gives them a good pregame speech. This is a team that has gone through so many game 7's Montreal (win), Tampa (win), Philly (last year - loss) Montreal the (year before - loss).

This is shaping up to be a great series regardless, and I am clueless who gets the Conn Smythe

I think that Burrows could possibly get it could you imagine Kesler, Sedin(s), Luongo all have been not so good. Thomas for the Bruins
Tim Thomas win or lose. Nobody on the Canucks is worthy of the Conn Smythe. Kesler is the only one worth mentioning, but he hasn't done much this series. Thomas will get it.

And its been vice versa in Boston.

If the Bruins can turn that around...they'll create the extra boost they need to generate some scoring in Vancouver. (IMO)
Last change is a helluva lot less without Edler in the lineup.

Definitely energy is good for the physical game. I thought B's started better than the Canucks in game 5 and the Canucks started better than the B's tonight until the Marchand goal. (Funny to see Marchand make his shot tonight, really similar to Kelly's crossbar in game 5.)

Either way I hope the B's are able to break through on Wednesday, it just seems unlikely based on the inability to generate scoring chances in Vancouver.

I feel Boston has more resolve than Vancouver and is mentally stronger than them.

Boston could come from a 2-0 deficit, I don't think Vancouver could. The start is pretty important in this one.

I think and hope Boston wins.

Vancouver has NEVER come back from a two goal deficit in the playoffs under Vingeault.

Never.

Although Vancouver is the only team to come from behind and win in the series.

As had been said numerous times, first goal is monumentally important. The Canucks are really really good with a lead. The Bruins need to pepper Luongo right from the start. No need for perfect pretty plays, just get it on and see what happens - Luongo has not looked very good the entire playoffs IMO. The Canucks D has done a great job of clearing the front of the net and all those juicy rebounds.

Go Bruins!

I'd say Marchand and Smith (G6 OT) would be the poster childs, but the fact of the matter is he lets in a lot of goals he shouldn't because he's too deep in his net.

Ya...short side high cheeze while, taken mid-stride.

Its a tough save for any goalie when the shooter puts it all together like that!

Luongo has 4 shutouts in the playoffs on home ice. Has played pretty well on home ice. Its strange that he's so different on the road but he's been plenty good at home.

Big question so far is what happens to the Bruins intensity and physical domination in the games in Vancouver. Bruins look like a completely different team in Vancouver.

Marchand and Lucic for instance have been invisible in Vancouver as are most of the Bruins physical players on the road.

ftr I'm agreeing. I just don't see making that kind of comment. Sometimes the Nucks just seem to be trolling those illogical type comments out there. They've been doing it with the media all playoffs.
Not sure if its meant to have guys laughing at them, getting mad, or not taking them as seriously.

I know his numbers have been good, but to my eyes, he wasn't great in most of those shutouts - I saw it as Vancouver's D playing amazing hockey. Obviously he wasn't terrible in any of those games, but despite the good numbers, I didn't see him steal many games (I suppose a couple of them he seemed to be zoned in). Contrast that with Rinne for instance - I thought looked spectacular for most of his games. Not sure if I'm explaining myself properly - it's 2AM. Time for bed

And yeah - Lucic needs to bring his game with him this time.

He really needs to be consistently physical.

He's been hot and cold these playoffs, but for the Bruins to win, they need him to be a wrecking ball Wednesday. Hit everything and everyone.

He's just so god damn effective when he's out to take someones head off.

I didn't see a second of the game; had a mens league game and only heard the third period on the radio.

Van announcers were saying Edler had an upper body injury and didn't finish the game.
