Stanley Cup Final Game 5

On NBC now.

Even I'm thinking the Stanley Cup Final this late in the year is a little crazy. They really need to cut 5-7 games out of the regular season and wrap this puppy up before Memorial Day. File that under "Yeah but it'll never happen".

Anyway...If you're following the series it's been one of momentum swings. After 2 close games in Vancouver, the Canucks were up 2-0 and it looked like it might be a short series.

And then they went to Boston. After two Bruins ass-whoopings the series is tied at 2 but you'd think it was 3-0 Bruins.

The Canucks are a very, very skilled team that simply simply has no ability to stop the bleeding when things go bad. If they are controlling the game, very few teams in the league can play with them. But the second it starts to go bad...it just gets worse.

That's basically the story of their goalie Roberto Luongo as well. He was pulled in the last game after giving up 4 goals (he gave up 8 in Game 3). Watch for him to be on the proverbial short-leash tonight. If he starts to box the puck around and giving up big rebounds...the end is near for him, it's just a matter of time (shoot glove side kids!).

Also watch for the physicality of the Bruins. They are just beating the hell out of the Canucks. As a long series adds to an already long season it adds up.

I'm pretty sure I had the Bruins in 6 so, I'm liking this so far.
