Vancouver Canucks Say They Definitely Want To Play The Tampa Bay Lightning In Stanley Cup Finals

Luongo's reaction when asked which team he would rather face in Cup Finals

When asked who they would prefer to play in the next round, the team being confronted with the question usually takes the easy route and says that it doesn’t matter who they play because both teams are equally good. The Vancouver Canucks chose to answer the question differently saying that they absolutely hope to play the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals which begins next Wednesday. Tampa faces the Boston Bruins tonight in game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals and Canucks players will be watching and cheering for the upstart Lightning to come away with a victory. “Oh yeah we definitely are hoping that the Lightning can win tonight. We would much rather see them in the finals because they just don’t pose as many problems as the Bruins do,” said captain Henrik Sedin. “Boston has some big, tough forwards who love to play a physical, grinding game and then of course they have Chara on the back-end and he is just a nightmare to play against. And then there is a pretty big difference in net too.” 

The Canucks will be hoping to take advantage of their ability to rest and recover after eliminating the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night; something that goaltender Roberto Luongo says won’t really matter anyways if they end up facing the Lightning. “I don’t think it matters much how much or how little rest we get as long as we get to play Tampa. Hopefully the hockey gods keep shining down on us and TB can come away with the win because we have to like our chances against them. I mean come on. A team with the dominator Chara and then Thomas in net or a team with a few good forwards, terrible D and Dwayne Roloson in net. I think its pretty easy to see who we would rather play.”
