Daniel Sedin guarantees victory, then backs off

VANCOUVER --- The Vancouver Canucks’ Sedin twins have been fairly anonymous through the first six games of the Stanley Cup Final.

Then came Daniel Sedin’s proclamation after the Canucks fell to the Boson Bruins, 5-2, in Game 6, setting up Wednesday’s decisive tilt.

"We're going to win Game 7," Daniel Sedin told the Vancouver Sun.

But hours before the decisive game at Rogers Arena, Daniel said he didn't meant for it to be a guarantee.

"That was probably me being excited and the words came wrong out of my mouth," Daniel said. "What I said was if we put our best game on the ice, I like our chances. That's the way it's been all year. When we play our best, we're a tough team to beat. We show that at home. We like our chances."

The home team has won each of the first six games of the series and the Canucks have baffled the Bruins' offense here, so there is some reason for confidence.

"If you don't believe that in this room, we're screwed," Daniel said. "We believe in ourselves here, and it's no different now. We should be proud of what we've done this year so far. Taking this to a Game 7, home ice advantage in the Stanley Cup finals, what else can you ask for?"

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault was hardly upset at Daniel, who led the league in scoring with 104 points this season.

"What did you expect him to say?" Vigneault said. "Come on, we're in this to win. Daniel is one of our leaders on our group and he believes in the group and he expressed it. I think it's a normal thing to do at this time."

A Bruins victory tonight is relatively simple.  Don't try to out skate the Cunucks..............knock them out of their skates and they'll run and hide. Luongo cannot defend a high glove side shot so blast away. If the Bruins beat the sh*t out them physically and score first, it's over. The Cunucks are not a come from behind team.  They score and freeze the game.     Kill 'em all, let God sort the souls.

Wow.   Daniel Sedin not even waiting for the game to start before he backs down.  That's a new low.

This is the difference with Messier's promise.  He stood by his words, manned up and delivered the win by scoring three goals.  Will Daniel score a few, or just sit back and hope his team mates deliver for him?



 that's the one knock that all of the European players have on them, they're soft once the playoffs roll around

You're right.  I've been a Bruins fan since I was a kid and caught just about all their games this season.  When they were over, I'd flip around to catch the west coast action.  Invariably I'd watch the high flying Canucks.  I've been saying the same things all these playoffs.  This team is very different than the one I watched during the season.  Go Boston!!
