2011 NHL Stanley Cup Finals Prediction

And that, my friends, is what every single club in the National Hockey League plays for, Lord Stanley's Cup. Now we are down to two teams left, the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks, and they will be playing for the right to claim the cup. Will the Canucks win their first Stanley Cup or will the Bruins win thei first since 1990? It's time for my Stanley Cup prediction.

The Boston Bruins were impressive when they had their backs against the wall in the Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far. They will give the Canucks all they can handle and should make this a very entertaining series. However I do not think they can beat the Canucks. 

The Canucks should be able to expose the Bruins' shortcomings in their special teams and goaltender Roberto Luongo has settled in after a tense opening round against the Blackhawks. The Canucks as a whole have been very impressive after they struggled to knock off Chicago and outclassed the Predators and the Sharks. The Sedin twins will be important as always, but I think the difference for Vancouver will be the return of the best second-line center in all of hockey from injury, Ryan Kesler. Kesler's presence to lead the second line will push Vancouver past Boston.
