No matter what happens tonight, we’ll have something interesting to talk about. Either the Vancouver Canucks will win their first Stanley Cup in their 40-year franchise history or the Boston Bruins will play in their first Game 7 in their 17 Cup finals runs. Will we see champagne fall on the heads of Canucks players or the pain of a pressure-packed deciding Game 7 on Wednesday?

It seems like it can go either way. The Canucks remain the strong favorites and hold a 3-2 series lead yet the Bruins have dismantled Vancouver by a 12-1 mark at home.

From the look of things, there won’t be any major lineup changes, but that can always change in the cat-and-mouse game of the playoffs. Still, to many, it will all come down to Tim Thomas and Zdeno Chara vs. the Sedin twins, Ryan Kesler and Roberto Luongo. Which side will improve their legacies (and chances of winning it all) tonight? We’ll have to watch and see.
