Game 7. It’s every sports fan’s dream. High drama. Win or go home. Players putting it all out there for the chance to do it again next week.

Tonight, the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning will face off during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. While I’ll be watching intently, all these two teams are playing for is second place. That’s because, awaiting these two teams are the Vancouver Canucks.

The Canucks were built to win the Stanley Cup. Though they struggled to close out their first round series against the Chicago Blackhawks, they have been in cruise-control since, dispatching the Nashville Predators ad San Jose Sharks.

Since his first round struggles, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo, the most talented goalie on the planet, has posted a .922 save percentage and allowed only about two goal per game. With the best goalie left and perhaps the three players left in Ryan Kesler and the Sedin twins, the Canucks would have no business losing in the Finals, regardless of whether they face the Bruins or the Lightning.

Tampa’s biggest weakness is in goal, where Dwayne Roloson has looked like a lost 41-year-old for the past few games. Even in Wednesday’s win, Roloson allowed four goals on only 20 shots. And for the B’s, Timmy Thomas isn’t exactly playing like the Vezina Trophy winner either. Whichever goalie gets it together tonight (I’ll take Thomas) will probably lead his team to the Finals, but unless things change big-time, they won’t beat Luongo.

This may be a buzz kill for many in Tampa and Boston, but a Finals appearance is nothing to be ashamed of. Enjoy tonight’s drama, because unless Luongo chokes even harder than he did in the opening round and the Sedin twins get the chickenpox, it’ll be the last drama this year’s NHL playoffs have to offer.
