Stanley Cup Finals 2011, Game 5: Bruins, Canucks Meet In Vancouver

Through four games, the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Finals have looked like two completely different series, In the first two games, the home-standing Vancouver Canucks won in last-second fashion. In Boston for Games 3 and 4, the Bruins won blowouts. Friday night, Game 5 returns to Vancouver, and to network television ( 8 p.m. ET, NBC).

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault said he hopes the Canucks can play the game at their pace.

"Boston has, you know, a game that they like to play," Vigneault said. "We like to play fast paced game and that's what we're going to try to put on the ice tonight."

Vigneault also said that goalkeeper Roberto Luongo, pulled after two periods in Game 4, will start Game 5.
