Canucks Using High Intensity Scrimmages to Overcome EIght-Day Layoff

Vancouver may have gone eight games without playing a real hockey game, but the Bruins shouldn't expect them to be at all rusty come Wednesday.

Canucks practices have featured high-intensity scrimmages, a relative rarity for this time of year, and they look more than ready for the Final. Also, Cup fever in their city may even be more intense than it is in Boston, with all of Canada hoping they can end the country's long championship drought.

Doug Flynn caught up with Naoko Funayama on Tuesday to give his take on Vancouver. See what he had to say in the video above.
