2011 Stanley Cup Finals

Well, the Stanley Cup Finals starts tomorrow evening in Vancouver. NBC will be broadcasting the first two games this week.

#1 vs. #3

Both teams have played well to get here. Both have two solid scoring lines. Both have gotten excellent goal tending by their goalies. Vancouver definitely has the edge on the power play, but Boston is more healthy on the blue line and has played the best 5-on-5 hockey.   Overall, Boston owns the series between the two teams, 66-25-17.  In fact, Vancouver has not much success winning at Boston, so I can see home teams winning their games. If Boston can get their power play working, they have a great chance to taking this series to seven and even winning it.  All the experts I have read are picking the Canucks.  In fact, EA Sports simulator picked the Canucks, although I thought I read it picked the Bruins.   Even the omens are in favor of the Canucks.

Whoever does win, I am looking forward to good series going 7 games.

Pick: Bruins
