A series does not start until both teams have home ice. The Boston Bruins proved that in the past week by evening the series with the Vancouver Canucks. The Bruins could have easily swept the series, but to know they are even with the Canucks now after two devastating losses is a sigh of relief.
After Nathan Horton received a late hit from Aaron Rome, the Bruins have outscored the Canucks 12-1. Coincidence? I think so. The Bruins are now inside Roberto Luongo's head who has received the nod as game five starter. The physical play of Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Johnny Boychuk and the emergence of tough guy Shawn Thornton have really worn down the Canucks. The Sedin sisters have been a non-factor and Ryan Kesler has not been the same since the big hit by Boychuk in game two. It is a best of three series and the Bs have all the momentum heading back to Vancouver. Mark Recchi has been finding the back of the net, Brad Marchand is getting under the Canucks skin, David Krejci is making a case for the MVP of the Stanley Cup, and oh, Timmy Thomas has been spectacular.
