The Boston Bruins will try to even the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks Saturday night in Vancouver (8 p.m. ET, NBC). Vancouver won the series opener 1-0 on a goal with less than 20 seconds to play.
"I think for both teams obviously it's a very important game. For them, without a doubt, they're thinking about coming in here and getting at least a split. We're thinking about keeping home-ice advantage," said Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault.
"But at the end of the day, we haven't approached our games that way. I've said this a thousand times: we're playing every game, we're getting ready for every game one at a time. We put a plan out for the players. We expect them to go out and execute. After we've played that game, we analyze it, make the adjustments we need, and move on."
