Upsetting Game in Boston

Today Vancouver did what they have done all series... not show up in Boston and get embarrassed...
I can't completely complain because today's game was probably the best they have done away this series. Luongo allowed 4 goals within 7 minutes which quickly put the Canucks in the slumps. The problem with Vancouver seems to be their defense not protecting the goalie properly and the offense not finishing their chances. Multiple breakaways and goal scoring opportunities have been missed this series and if Vancouver wants to come out and in game 7 they will need a little luck and a whole lot of concentration. I really liked when Schneider came into the goal because he seemed like he had more of a sense of direction around the goal and made sure he kept his near post covered at all times. Schneider allowed one goal throughout his time in goal and it was a beautiful tip by Micheal Ryder, Shot by Tomas Kaberle (Former Maple Leaf.... Damn him). In the opening minute of the game Mason Raymond was hurt after being awkwardly tangled up with Boston defenseman Johnny Boychuk. To me it was hitting him after the play and holding. I have not heard anything about his injury but if the Canucks are without Rome and Raymond in the final game, it will add to the amount of luck and drive they will need.

The Last game will be Wednesday June 16th at the Roger's Arena in Vancouver, BC. This game will test the Canucks and they will need to come out wanting to win to stop this Bruins team.
