Bruins-Canucks

  1. Could Roberto Luongo match Dirk Nowitzki, eliminate two ‘choker’ labels in two nights?

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    There are a ton of differences between Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo and Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki, but Luongo could follow in Dirk’s footsteps by shedding an antiquated “choker” label one night after the German basketball star did the same.

  2. Vancouver Canucks bristle at ‘villain’ title

    Jun 13, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Mark Recchi, Maxim Lapierre

    The Canucks don’t think that they deserve the “villain” title many have attached to them during the 2011 Stanley Cup finals. Either way, Kevin Bieksa adamantly states that they don’t care.

  3. Stanley Cup or not, Tim Thomas is producing a special 2010-11 season and playoffs

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Tim Thomas

    Tim Thomas is putting together the kind of run that is drawing comparisons to the best work of Patrick Roy and Dominik Hasek. If you look at the numbers (and his highlight reel saves) it’s clear that those comparisons aren’t out of order.

  4. Sedin twins’ struggles aren’t that different from other star slumps in recent Cup finals history

    Jun 12, 2011, 9:48 PM EDT

    Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin

    A lack of toughness doesn’t explain the Sedin twins’ Stanley Cup finals struggles. Instead, it’s an abundance of a tough minutes against Zdeno Chara and the tough task of beating Tim Thomas that stands in their way.

  5. Ryan Kesler missed practice Sunday, but should play in Game 6 on Monday

    Brad Marchand, Ryan Kesler

    Ryan Kesler missed today’s practice, fueling already building rumors that he’s been injured in the Stanley Cup finals. It seems like he will play in Game 6 either way, though.

  6. Discussing the potential downsides to winning the Stanley Cup

    Obviously, winning the Stanley Cup is fantastic in the short term. That being said, there are actually some downsides to reaching the ultimate goal in hockey.

  7. Aaron Rome doesn’t understand why he was suspended four games for hit on Nathan Horton

    Jun 12, 2011, 3:41 PM EDT

    Aaron Rome, Nathan Horton

    In today’s not-so-shocking news, Aaron Rome disagrees with the four-game suspension he received for his hit on Nathan Horton.

  9. Can Claude Julien maintain his ‘Midas Touch’ in Game 5?

    Jun 10, 2011, 6:17 PM EDT

    Claude Julien

    Claude Julien has been pushing all the right buttons lately, especially in Boston’s two wins. Can he keep it up with the series back in Vancouver?

  10. With two wins in Cup finals, Bruins gain something else: higher expectations

    Vancouver Canucks v Boston Bruins - Game Four

    The Bruins came into this series with at least some sense of “being happy to be there” – at least among some fans – but two big wins seem to have changed that mindset.

  11. Brad Marchand finds right balance between agitation and offense

    Keith Ballard;  Brad Marchand

    Brad Marchand is a rare example of a pest who brings so much more to the table than he takes away, he might deserve a new title entirely.

  12. Vancouver defense continues its disconcerting shuffles as Chris Tanev replaces Keith Ballard

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    Dan Hamhuis, Troy Brouwer, Roberto Luongo

    The Canucks’ problems on defense continue as they shift Keith Ballard out of the lineup for unproven depth defenseman Chris Tanev.

  13. Head games: While Luongo’s psyche is in question, is Thomas in Canucks’ heads?

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    Tim Thomas

    While many wonder where Roberto Luongo’s mind is at, the other question is: can the Canucks get Tim Thomas out of their heads?

  14. Alain Vigneault on Roberto Luongo starting in Game 5: ‘You can bet on it’

    Jun 10, 2011, 5:21 AM EDT

    Roberto Luongo

    The word is that Roberto Luongo will remain in Vancouver’s net for Game 5. That word came from Canucks coach Alain Vigneault, though, so you never really know.

  15. Did Aaron Rome’s hit on Nathan Horton actually hurt the Canucks more than the Bruins?

    On paper, the Bruins got the short end of the stick with both Aaron Rome and Nathan Horton being lost for the rest of their series against the Canucks. Yet when you look at the motivation Boston received and how the lineup changes have gone wrong for Vancouver, it’s clear the “trade off” was more even than expected.

  17. Beware the hip check: Keith Ballard looks to make Stanley Cup finals debut tonight

    Could we see another huge hip check tonight? It’s quite possible since Keith Ballard will make his first-ever appearance in a Stanley Cup finals contest in Game 4.

  18. Tyler Seguin will play in Game 4; How will Bruins replace Nathan Horton?

    Jun 8, 2011, 3:41 PM EDT

    Sergei Bobrovsky, Tyler Seguin, Michael Ryder

    Tyler Seguin will play in Game 4 while Nathan Horton is done for the series. So which Bruins players could skate in Horton’s spot on the team’s top line?

  19. Much like Tim Thomas before him, Roberto Luongo will stay the course despite defeat

    Jun 8, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    Roberto Luongo

    Much like Tim Thomas did as Game 3 approached, Roberto Luongo won’t let some bumps in the road change his style. He shouldn’t either; isn’t that what got him this far in the first place?

  20. Boston’s Game 3 crowd was louder than Rogers Arena in Game 2

    Tampa Bay Lightning v Boston Bruins - Game Five

    The first two games of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals took place in Vancouver, resulting in narrow wins for the Canucks. Could the advantages of being at home help the Bruins swing the balance in Boston? Some numbers indicate they might have a chance.

  24. Bruins, Canucks won’t blame jet lag in Game 3 after history-making trek

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Zdeno Chara

    The Bruins and Canucks made a 2,500+ mile trip from Vancouver to Boston for Game 3. Neither team seems like they’ll let jet lag be an excuse for flat play, though.

  25. Bruins hope to cut down their mistakes, improve their neutral zone play in Game 3
