NHL : Vancouver Canucks Favored in Game 5 - Despite Boston Bruins winning last two games

Though the series is tied at two games apiece, there’s no denying  the fact that the Boston Bruins have the momentum in the Stanley Cup Finals after winning Games 3 and 4 in Boston by scorelines of 8-1 and 4-0 repectively.

The Bruins essentially shattering any confidence that Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had established over the course of the postseason. Now, heading into Game 5 in Vancouver, all eyes will be between the pipes to see if Luongo can bounce back from consecutive annihilations.

Despite Vancouver's recent slide, the fact that the pivotal game will take place in British Columbia has tipped the scales in the Vancouver Canuck's favor, as the Stanley Cup odds at Bodog point to the Canucks as -175 favorites to win Game 5.

When at the top of his game, Luongo is more than capable of matching Bruins netminder Tim Thomas in the crease allowing the star-studded Canucks to overmatch Boston offensively. Unfortunately Luongo's inconsistency (nothing new for Vancouver fans) has reared its head, threatening Vancouvers chances of lifting the Stanley Cup.

Think you know how it will all go down?
