Stanley Cup Finals 2011 Schedule Live
The National Hockey League (NHL) has just announced the 2011 Stanley Cup Final schedule and the final two teams are set. The 2011 Stanley Cup Finals will pit the Western Conference champion Vancouver Canucks against the Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins.
Based on the regular-season performance, Vancouver Canucks, who finished with the best regular season record (117 points), will have home ice advantage and will host Games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, as well as Games 5 and 7, if necessary. Games 3 and 4 will be in Boston, as well as Game 6, if necessary.
In the United States, NBC will telecast Games 1 and 2 and, if necessary, Games 5 through 7 of the best-of-seven series, while VERSUS will broadcast Games 3 and 4. In Canada, CBC and RDS will provide coverage for the entire series.
NHL Network, the League’s 24-hour, all-access pass to the most comprehensive hockey coverage, will feature special programming surrounding the Stanley Cup Final. NHL.com will continue to provide extensive digital coverage.
This is Vancouver’s third appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals, following their unsuccessful Cinderella marches of 1982 and 1994, both times losing to a team from New York. They were swept by the Islanders in 1982, and were defeated in seven games by the Rangers in 1994. Vancouver is also attempting to become the first Canadian-based NHL team to win the Cup since the Montreal Canadiens in 1993.
