Tonight, the Stanley Cup Finals start as the Boston Bruins travel to Vancouver to take on the Canucks in Game 1. The Sedin twins look to win the first Stanley Cup for the Vancouver franchise while the Bruins look to win their first Cup since 1972. Mark Recchi is the only player (on either team) that was alive when the Bruins last won.
Puck drops at 8:00 PM and the game will air on NBC. Comment away below and enjoy the game. Here's the paths each team took to get here:
