The Vancouver Canucks have a chance to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history on Monday night as the series shifts back to Boston for Game 6. This has been an extremely entertaining Stanley Cup Final, and I fully expect the Bruins to win and force a 7th game. Anything less really wouldn't do this series justice.
Roberto Luongo looked very comfortable in Game 5 after the beatdown he took in Games 3 and 4 in Boston. If he remains calm, the Canucks have a legitimate chance to win the cup in Game 6. You can bet that Tim Thomas will be on his game for Boston, as he has been all series. Prediction for Game 6: Boston wins 4-2.
