Canucks Players Say Stanley Cup Final Is Biggest Moment of Careers, Even Bigger Than Olympic Glory

Both the Bruins and the Canucks have players who have played on the Olympic stage, but it's difficult to say the Stanley Cup Final isn't the biggest moment of their careers.

Ian Walker of the Vancouver Sun spoke with NESN's Naoko Funayama prior to Game 1, and he said that the players he spoke with told him that while the glory of playing in the Olympics is nice, the Stanley Cup is what they've played for their entire lives.

To hear what else Walker had to say about the series, including the status of Canucks forward Manny Malhotra, check out the video above.
