BOSTON, MA (AP) - Clearly, there have been some long, dreary Memorial Day Weekends for Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs.

This is not one of them.
After the past four seasons ended with two losses in the second round, one in the first and another in which the postseason was missed altogether, Jacobs' crew, for a change, is in the midst of a rewarding run to the Stanley Cup final. On Wednesday, the Bruins will meet the Vancouver Canucks in Game 1 after impressive victories over Montreal, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay.
``I think that (GM) Peter (Chiarelli) has put together a dream team, his dream, and as he saw it within the parameters that they have to work,'' Jacobs said on Sunday. ``I think (president) Cam (Neely) has shown great understanding of hockey. And this is a great city to play hockey in.''
This will be the Bruins' first Stanley Cup final appearance since 1990. Vancouver hasn't made it this far since 1994.
