This year's Stanley Cup Finals comes down to a seventh and final game, as the Bruins notched a 5-2 win over the Canucks in Game 6 last night. The B's travel back to Vancouver for Game 7 on Wednesday night starting at 8 PM.
BC's own Cory Schneider and Andrew Alberts look to join a growing list of Eagles ice hockey alum that have hoisted the Stanley Cup.
Joey Mullen won three Stanley Cups in the late 1980s and early 1990s with Calgary and Pittsburgh. Kevin Stevens also won back-to-back Cups on those same 1991 and 1992 Pittsburgh Penguins championship teams. Leetch won a Cup with the Rangers in 1994, while Guerin won his first cup with the Devils a year later. Doug Brown hoisted the Cup twice as a member of Detroit's 1997 and 1998 championship teams.
In recent years, Brian Gionta (2003), Ryan Shannon (2007), Bill Guerin (2009), Brooks Orpik (2009) and Rob Scuderi (2009) have all won Stanley Cups.
In 19 of the last 20 World Series, Stanley Cup Finals or NBA Playoffs Game 7s, the home team has won the series. The home team has also won every game in this series, with Luongo looking a bit Jekyll and Hyde-ish at home vs. on the road. And the last time the Stanley Cup Finals went to a decisive Game 7, three more Eagles notched their names on Lord Stanley's Cup.
So Canucks-Bruins game 7. Who ya got?
