VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - In the hours leading up Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo tapped a reporter on the shoulder and asked, "You still believe in me, right?

It's a question the city of Vancouver will be asking all summer.

With the Stanley Cup on the line, Luongo gave up three goals on 13 shots through two periods, finishing with 16 saves in a 4-0 loss Wednesday night to a Boston team that was supposed to struggle to score.

Not that Luongo was alone. Captain Henrik Sedin had one point in the Cup finals, twin brother Daniel had four, and the winners of the last two scoring titles, were on the ice for all four Boston goals in Game 7.

That Zdeno Chara, Boston's 6-foot-9 defensive star and captain, shut down the Sedins is not a huge surprise, but even with the extra attacker the Sedins came up short.
