So who’s winning tonight? The Canucks or the Bruins?

I, as you know, am a Habs fan and in spite of what my son Keane thinks, I am not cheering for the Boston Bruins in this series. But I do think they’re going to win game seven Wednesday and quite frankly they deserve to take home the Cup for the first time in four decades.

In a word – okay a few words – the ‘Nucks have been downright schizoid in this series and, if they do happen to get the proverbial game-seven lucky bounce and win it all, they will be one of the least deserving Cup winners in years. The Sedin twins have been invisible and Roberto Luongo has been both brilliant and amongst the worst goalies in the history of Stanley Cup finals.

I still don’t much like the Bruins but I think you’d have to be one major Canucks fan to suggest that Vancouver has been the better team here. Now Boston has the momentum, though you could argue that this bizarre series hasn’t had anything resembling momentum in either direction.

In the end, it’s impossible to really know what will happen in any game seven. Look at that strange game seven in the Tampa Bay Bruins series where the Lightning simply didn’t show any intensity in the most important game of the year for the team.

But if I had to bet, I’d put my money – like let’s say a quarter – on the Bruins lifting Lord Stanley’s trophy higher than it’s ever been before (thanks to the not-so-gentle giant Zdeno Chara, as a caller to Team 990 pointed out a few hours back). And no I won’t be cheering.
