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 had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
