VANCOUVER, BC - JUNE 10: Roberto Luongo #1 and Ryan Kesler #17 of the Vancouver Canucks celebrate after defeating the Boston Bruins by a score of 1-0 in Game Five of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Final at Rogers Arena on June 10, 2011 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Any notions of Vancouver's early demise were ill conceived as the Canucks held on for a tough 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins in game five of the Stanley Cup Finals. The club now has a 3-2 advantage as both teams fly back to Boston for game six on Monday night.
Roberto Luongo had the shutout for the home team and looked like a different goalie than he did in Boston.
It seems like there should be a game seven for this series, but the Bruins need to earn it first.
