To Patrice Bergeron, win your faceoffs and keep the playoffs number one penalty kill on track.
To Zdeno Chara, use that big body to clear the front of the net so Tim Thomas can see thins clearly.
To Sami Salo, knock a few wings on their tail and keep the puck from going in too deep.
To Alex Burrows, agitate, aggravate, accelerate and get some Bruins fuming.
To Milan Lucic, we call you a mini Cam Neely; tonight you can prove it by taking over the game with your physicality and scoring a few goals.
To Brad Marchand, you have a napoleon complex; we know this, stay in third gear all game long and don’t let up.
To Ryan Kesler, get physical, cause some ruckus and be a leader.
To Daniel Sedin, score a goal, please, you’re overdue.
To Tyler Seguin, you’re not a rookie anymore, play like it.
To Andy McQuaid, be Chara’s right hand man get dirty and stop the Canucks from doing what they do.
To Henrik Sedin, thanks for waking up in game 6 and scoring a goal finally. The Canucks need more than that out of you tonight. If you are one of the top 5 players in the league then tonight is the perfect stage to show just why that is. Take over with your precise passing, set up Kesler and your brother and the other Canucks with chances to score goals. Show us why you were last season’s MVP.
To Kevin Bieksa, you’re the number one defenseman on your team; your unit has been up and down throughout this series. Make sure it doesn’t happen tonight.
To Cory Schneider, be ready just in case.
To Tomas Kaberle, the Bruins brought you here so you can boost the power play from the point and provide an offensive spark from the defense. You need to do that tonight.
To Dennis Seidenberg, keep harassing, keep hitting, keep the puck in front of you and keep the Sedins from getting behind you.
To Alain Vineault, remember when Montreal fired for your lack of success and didn’t think you were the type of coach to lead a team to the finals? Prove them wrong forever tonight.
To Claude Julien, remember how Lou Lamarillo fired you before the playoffs in 2006 and it probably cost you and the Devils a Cup? Remember that tonight when you make your decisions and think about winning the cup and flashing a finger at the trigger happy GM in New Jersey.
To Roberto Luongo, shut up and play. You trashed Tim Thomas then you got trashed. You’re the man at home but away from Rogers Arena you’re a joke. That doesn’t matter tonight however. This is your domain, you r house, defend it. Play like you’re playing in the goal medal game again. Stand on your head, let your game do your talking for you and when, if, you get down don’t get that lost look in your eyes and run to the bench. Man up and lead your team to victory. You used to be the captain of this team, those leadership skills would come in handy right now.
To Tim Thomas… just keep doing it how you’ve been doing it. That’s all.
Tonight is game 7; there are no more games this season once the last horn sounds. Leave everything on the ice, go hard and catch your breath when it’s over.
The cup is within your grasp, play like you want it.
