The Vancouver Canucks have been the best team in the NHL all season long, and with the Stanley Cup Finals odds in from those who make them, it's no surprise that the Canucks are favored over the Boston Bruins in Game 1.
Oddsmaker also has some fun prop bets on Game 1, and as expected, they don't expect Boston to score first on the power play. The Canucks are favorites at -140 in that department. They see the chances of a shutout by either goaltender as rare, with "No" being favored by -500, despite the fact that both Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo are Vezina-candidates.
The odds are also against the game going into overtime (-340), in favor of both Sedin twins registering a point (-145), and against either team scoring three unanswered goals (-250).
The Stanley Cup Finals kick off Wednesday in Vancouver, as the Canucks host the Boston Bruins. For coverage on the Finals, stick with our Stanley Cup Finals hub, our Canucks blog, Nucks Misconduct, and our Bruins blog, Stanley Cup of Chowder.
