Stanley Cup Finals goes to deciding game

After 413 shots, 386 saves, 337 penalty minutes and 27 goals, the Stanley Cup Finals boils down to one number: seven.

Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins is tonight and nearly 19,000 attendants are expected to pack the Rogers Arena, hoping to see team captain Henrik Sedin raise the trophy that Vancouver has never seen and the country hasn’t hosted in more than a decade.

“I’ve got 18,000 on my side and an entire city and country,” said forward Ryan Kesler in an interview with the Associated Press. “As a team, as a family, we want this really bad.”

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Mark Recchi summed up what the trophy means to the two cities.

“It would be hard to find two places where the Cup would mean more to people,” he said.

If the winning trend of the series continues, Vancouver may be the one rejoicing in the end, as the home team has won every matchup.

Sixty minutes of game time determines which city will be bringing home the title for its fans before it goes into storage for the summer. The world will be watching.
