OK - this is tough for me...... Bruins - Canucks is my dream matchup for the Stanley Cup. I live in Vancouver and have followed the Canucks since they broke into the league in '70...... My favorite team since I was a kid though is Boston - when I started playing hockey at 6 years old the Bruins were dominant and winning cups........ Bobby Orr, Esposito, Cheevers......... man I loved those teams.
I always wondered who I'd cheer for if they ever matched up in the finals............ pretty early on in game 1 I realized my homer instincts had kicked in and I was instinctively pulling for the 'nucks.
Unfortunately for me I'm working in Bangkok for the summer and it's next to impossible to catch a game. They start at 7:00 in the morning and except for the weekend games I'm working I did blow off work for game 1 though and watched it live on NHL.com - what an ending!!!!!!!
I found a bar that's going to open early and show the game with breakfast on Sunday morning so that should be cool.
Anyway - Canucks in 7
