VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Green Men, a.k.a. Sully and Force, are the unofficial Canucks mascots that wreak havoc on opposing players by the visitor's penalty box at Rogers Arena. Their wild and crazy antics have turned them into celebrities during the 2011 NHL season.

For Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals, the Green Men broke out a famous Bostonian and put him in a Canucks uniform to try to rattle Boston. Check out the video above to see Ben Affleck... well, at least a cardboard cutout of him, join the Green Men in the stands.

Sully and Force will indeed be coming to Boston for Games 3 and 4, but said they'd "like to return with all their teeth" after making the trip to the Garden.

So far their presence has had little effect on psyching out the Bruins, as the game remains scoreless after two periods despite Vancouver finishing up a two-man advantage in which the Affleck cutout was pressed against the Bruins penalty box glass.
