VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Almost 150 people required hospital treatment and close to 100 were arrested after rioters swept through downtown Vancouver following the Canucks’ loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final.
BOSTON (AP) — Although Roberto Luongo is receiving much of the blame for Vancouver’s two-game meltdown in Boston during the Stanley Cup finals, the Canucks refuse to allow their goalie to take the heat alone.
Keith Ballard started skating at age 4.
By the end of that winter, he was playing on a hockey team.
The sport came natural to the Baudette, Minn., native, who went on to star at Lake of the Woods High School and the University of Minnesota.
Now, Ballard is four games away from bringing hockey’s biggest prize back to Baudette.
