Stanley Cup Final Game 1 Analysis And Other News



Well folks we had a great game today. Game 1 in Vancouver was a great contest, a real old time duel between netminders. Time Thomas and Roberto Luongo battled all game, not allowing any goals until 18.5 seconds left in the 3rd period. Thomas came out slightly too far and the 'Nucks were able to slip one by to get the 1-0 winner to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

The Bruins looked very slow in the 3rd period. While both teams were gased watching the game it really seamed like the B's were exhausted, maybe a sign of the long ECF battle against the Bolts, either way they still were near perfect. The series started very physical like most Cup Finals, which helped the B's slightly. The series should shape up to be a good one in the B's can steal a game in Vancouver.

Other News: 

  • Complete opposites in Chicago baseball today as the White Sox swept the Red Sox, and the Cubs got swept by the Astros 
  • Shaq retired, ending his 19 year Hall Of Fame NBA career
  • The mens semi-finals in the French Open are all set, should be some great matchs with the top 4 seeds in the semis 
  • Dirk Nowitzki injured his finger in game 1 of the NBA finals, we'll see how this effects the rest of the series

  17. Great game, I like both teams but it would be great to see the Canucks get their first Stanley win. And I think Shaq was with Cleveland last year, Mavs win the second game! I really want the Mavericks to win.
