Wednesday's Stanley Cup preview: Bruins versus Canucks

Wednesday's Stanley Cup preview:

Boston at Vancouver, 8 p.m. ET

Bruins—Boston arrives for Game 1 looking to put an end to a 39-year Stanley Cup drought. The Bruins were last in the Cup final in 1990 when they lost in five games to the Edmonton Oilers. They won their lone regular season meeting with Vancouver 3-1 in February.

Canucks—The excitement will be at a fever pitch for the start of the Cup final in Vancouver. The Canucks have never won a Stanley Cup despite pushing the New York Rangers to seven games in 1994. They led the league in the regular season before beating Chicago, Nashville and San Jose in the playoffs to reach the final.
