Vancouver Canucks at Boston Bruins (Canucks lead 3-2), 8 p.m. ET
The Canucks are one win away from winning their first Stanley Cup. In 1994, they lost to the Rangers in the Cup finals in Game 7.
The Bruins have never played a Game 7 in the Cup finals.
Boston outscored Vancouver 12-1 at home in this series. It was the largest goal differential in a two-game span in Stanley Cup finals history, according to Elias.
This is the first time since 2002 the Stanley Cup finals will end after the NBA Finals.
The team that has scored first has won every game in this series.
Roberto Luongo is trying to become the first goalie to win a gold medal in the Olympics and the world championships and win a Stanley Cup.
Luongo is 5-5 with a 3.49 goals-against average on the road this postseason. He is 10-3 with a 1.70 goals-against average at home. His 15 wins this postseason tied Kirk McLean (1994) for the most wins by a Canucks goalie in a single postseason.
If the Bruins win, they will be the 10th team to come back from a 2-0 series deficit to force a Game 7 in the finals.
Tim Thomas has a .938 save percentage this season, including the postseason. This is the highest save percentage in any season since the statistic started to be tracked in the 1982-83 season.
If the Bruins lose the series and Thomas still wins the Conn Smythe, he would be the sixth player from a losing team to win the award. In the four previous instances, it was a goalie that won the award.
The Canucks would be the eighth team to win the Stanley Cup the same year they won the President's Trophy. The trophy was first handed out after the 1985-86 season.
