|Canucks Host Bruins in Opener
|VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Boston and the Canucks face off in Vancouver tonight to start the Stanley Cup finals. Both will be looking to end a lengthy chase to capture North America's oldest professional sports trophy.
The Canucks have never hoisted the Cup in the franchise's 40 years in business. The last time Boston celebrated was back in 1972 when Bobby Orr helped them win the club's fifth Stanley Cup.
