2011 NHL Stanley Cup Finals: Bruins vs Canucks, Who Will Bring It Home?

For both the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins, a berth in the Stanley Cup Finals has been a long time coming.

The Canucks are looking for their first taste of Stanley Cup glory in their 40-year history, and the original six team in the Bruins are looking for their first championship in 30 seasons; this is their first final since a five-game loss to the Edmonton Oilers' dynasty in 1990.

Boston and Vancouver were two teams picked by many experts to eventually face each other for the Cup, and sure enough, here we are. In their only meeting of the season, the Bruins defeated the Canucks 3-1 (EN goal) in February. All in all, they are two evenly-matched teams on paper, with the exception of the Bruins' horrendous power play this playoff season.

These are a few keys to determining who will be drinking champagne out of the Cup come the end of this series.
