Sedin softens his Game 7 guarantee

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Daniel Sedin is still confident the Vancouver Canucks can win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history. But he's backing away from his guarantee of a Game 7 win.

Monday night, after the Bruins scored four goals in nine minutes and rolled to a Game 6 win, Sedin said: "We lose as a team and win as a team and we're going to win Game 7," according to the Vancouver Sun.

Wednesday, he clarified that statement, explaining that the Canucks' success all season, particularly at home, gives him confidence they'll be the team skating victory laps around Rogers Arena with the Stanley Cup on Wednesday night.

"You know, that was probably me being excited and the words came wrong out of my mouth. What I said was if we put our best game on the ice, I like our chances. That's the way it's been all year," Sedin said. "When we play our best, we're a tough team to beat. We show that at home. We like our chances."
