Some final quotes from the aftermath of the Bruins' 5-2 victory over the Canucks at the Garden tonight:

Bruins coach Claude Julien, on how the Bruins can get their offense going in Vancouver: "Well, I think we are very well aware of how we've played on the road the last three games in Vancouver. It hasn't been good enough and our plan is certainly to change that for Game 7. We've created ourselves another opportunity and it's up to us to take advantage of it. But we've got to be hungrier than we have been the last three times in Vancouver and want to put some pucks at the net and get yourself hungry
around that net area."

Brad Marchand, on playing in front of Tim Thomas: "He's an unbelievable goalie. We all know that. It's definitely comforting to know he's back there."

Marchand, on having injured forward Nathan Horton around the team: "It's unbelievable to have Horty in the building. We saw the crowd's reaction when they showed him on [the scoreboard, waving a towel and smiling]. It definitely gave us a little bit more energy. It's good to see in person that he's doing well, and it's awesome to have him here. He wants to be there with us in Vancouver, but he's in our hearts, and we're going to battle for him."

Julien, on the Bruins's one-sided victories at home (they outscored the Canucks, 17-3, in the three games at the Garden: " I don't know. We needed to come out hard tonight and I thought our guys responded. We needed to come out hard the last two games before that because we were trailing 2-0 in the series. So our guys have responded well and now we have to make sure we don't get comfortable with our game. We're willing to bring it to Vancouver with us, because that's what it's going to take to win."

Canucks coach Alain Vigneault, on whether he had received an update on injured forward Mason Raymond: "No, I haven't."

Vigneault, on missing out on a chance to clinch the Cup tonight: "To tell you the truth it doesn't really matter. At the end of the day, they won and we're going back home in front of our fans. One game showdown to win the Cup. That's it."

Vigneault, on why both teams are playing well on their home ice: "Again, it doesn't matter. At the end of the day, they've won at home, we've won at home, and we're going back home. That's it."

Mark Recchi, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, on what he will tell his teammates before Game 7: "We'll talk. We have practice [Tuesday] and the biggest thing is just embracing it. This is what we dream of. We've had pressure all year, pressure all through the playoffs. It's come down to one game. There is no pressure, go play, go out and have fun with this. It's what you play for and what we've worked hard for all year. We're going to have a blast doing it. That will be the message. They'll see how I'm acting and see you can't let it grab you. You can't let it bite you."
