Stanley Cup Final: Canucks vs. Bruins
Raymond gets raucous reception
The Bruins aren't the only team that hopes the sight of an injured player will rev things up.

Vancouver forward Mason Raymond, who suffered a fractured vertebra early in Game 6, sent the Rogers Arena crowd into an uproar when he stood and waved a towel during the first TV timeout 7:27 into Game 7.

The sellout crowd of 18,860 hit a peak decibel count of 112 as they watched on the big screen as Raymond, wearing a brace to protect his injured back, waved his towel.

The Canucks say they hope Raymond will be back in the lineup by late November. For now, he'll have to settle for the role of head cheerleader.

In Game 6, Boston fans roared when forward Nathan Horton, injured in Game 3, made a similar appearance. Horton was able to travel with the team to Vancouver for Game 7.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.

— Forward Brandon Dubinsky on signing a six-year contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets
