five to two
there's a president's trophy awarded each nhl season to the team possessing the best regular season record, and this year, along with the coincident privilege of home ice advantage throughout the stanley cup playoffs, it belongs to the vancouver canucks. the boston bruins know that if you can't beat the best team in their building, you haven't earned better than the disappointed side of the handshake line, and they know for sure wednesday night is for all the marbles. if vancouver wins, they'll have earned it. and if boston wins, they will be the undisputed stanley cup champions just the same.
you simply can't ask for better than this.
