Storylines: Tonight could mark the final game of Mark Recchi's career. Recchi has said he will retire if the Bruins win the Cup. Even if they come up short, Recchi might be considering retirement. Recchi plans to stay in the game on the management side upon the conclusion of his playing career... Also possibly playing their last games in Boston: Michael Ryder, Tomas Kaberle, and Shane Hnidy, who will all be unrestricted free agents... The Bruins have outscored the Canucks so far, 14-6... Dan O'Halloran and Kelly Sutherland will be the referees. Jay Sharrers and Jean Morin will be the linesmen.
