Stanley Cup Finals Boston at Vancouver Game 1 odds

May 30, 2011 | by admin | posted in Boston Bruins, Vancouver Canucks

On Wednesday June 1 we will see the Boston Bruins take on the Vancouver Canucks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Boston plays a mean physical game. They are led by Chara the leagues ultimate shutdown defensman. Vancouver have a very deep and impressive defense. Forwards on both teams match up. Goaltending (Luongo/Thomas) both teams sport some very good goaltenders. Even backups are impressive, with Rask and Schneider.

Overall it looks like a fairly evenly matched series. Only two things I see with my prediction of Vancouver Canucks hoisting the cup in 7. Canucks are much deeper and mobile defensively, this is going to keep Boston backed up and secondly the Canucks powerplay is 17 for 61 and Boston’s is 5-60. If Boston takes penalties (see Horton) they will pay.
