The Bruins, The Canucks, and the Mav's
As the Boston Bruins wrapped up Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals, it's become jaw-droppingly vivid to just how much of a part home ice has played in the series. (home team has won every game in the series.) A quick answer? Luongo can't keep his cool on opposing ice, probably because there's about 3,179 miles in-between Vancouver and Boston. Just a heads-up for Game 7, back in Canada.
Also, congrats to the Mav's. Mark Cuban really turned my opinion of him, and Dirk played like a champion. Pretty storybook ending -- a free agent who decided to stay in his loyal franchise topples the press-heavy Big Three. A side note : My Blazers also took Dallas to 6 games, so that was practically my Finals experience.
