The Bruins are on their way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Literally.

The team held one final practice on the ice in Boston before flying to Vancouver in preparation for Wednesday’s Game 1 against the Vancouver Canucks.

Fans gathered outside the TD Garden to send the Bruins off to their first Stanley Cup Finals in 21 years.

The No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bruins face a tough opponent in the league’s best regular season team.

Bringing back the Cup isn’t impossible, though. In the teams’ only meeting this season, the B’s beat the Canucks 2-1 in Vancouver, behind 26 saves by goalie Tim Thomas.
