-- The 2011 Stanley Cup Final has been a tale of two teams led by polar opposite goalies playing what is essentially two different series -- one in Vancouver and the other in Boston.
The home teams are perfect, and since Game 7 will be played Wednesday at Rogers Arena -- where the Canucks have given up only two goals in the Final -- it seems only logical to think it will stay that way.
Then again, home teams have gone 7-0 in the Stanley Cup Final only three times, with the latest being the New Jersey Devils
and Anaheim Ducks
in 2003. Pittsburgh and Detroit were each 3-0 at home heading into Game 7 in 2009, but the Penguins won the Stanley Cup in Joe Louis Arena.
Maybe the Bruins will follow the lead of the Penguins and ruin the home-ice perfection in this series to bring the Cup to Boston for the first time since 1972.
Except, the Canucks have been so good at home all season. They've won a League-best 37 games since October. Maybe they win the Cup for the first time in franchise history.
