Canucks’ Daniel Sedin predicts Game 7 win

 

The Boston Bruins received more bulletin board material, heading into Game 7, thanks to Vancouver Canucks’ star forward, Daniel Sedin, who guaranteed that his team would win the Stanley Cup. Sedin, who scored 41 goals and 104 points this season, softened his stance on Tuesday when asked about his bold prediction, which more than likely angered the Bruins. “You know, that was probably me being excited and the words came wrong out of my mouth,” Sedin said, ” What I said was if we put our best game on the ice …I like our chances. That’s the way it’s been all year,” Sedin said. “When we play our best … we’re a tough team to beat. We show that at home. We like our chances.” Following losing Game 6 by a humiliating 5-2 score, Sedin said “We lose as a team and win as a team and we’re going to win Game 7.” Vancouver, who survived a first round Game 7 scare against the Chicago Blackhawks, will be playing without second liner, Mason Raymond, who suffered a fractured vertebre in the early moments of Game 6 and now faces a three to four months rehab stint. Taking his spot for Game 7 will be Jeff Tambellini. Meanwhile, the Bruins, who haven’t won the Cup since 1972, opted to skip the Wednesday morning pre-game skate. “There’s no doubt everybody is excited about this opportunity,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “You’ve got to stay the course and that has served us well. Our group right now seems calm, focused and ready to do the job.”
