Poll: Who wins Stanley Cup finals?

OK, WEEI.com readers, let's see if you can continue your success predicing the Bruins' results in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Last week, you correctly predicted the Bruins would beat the Lightning in regulation in a close game in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Previously, you predicted the Bruins would beat the Lightning in the series (albeit you had the number of games incorrect).

And in Round 1 you had the Bruins beating the Canadiens in regulation in Game 7. They almost did, before settling for an overtime victory.

Now it's time to make your call on the Stanley Cup finals. Will the...

Report: Colin Campbell out as NHL VP

According to a tweet from TSN's Darren Dreger, controversial NHL discipline czar Colin Campbell is stepping down as NHL senior vice president and director of hockey operations, and his likely successor is longtime NHL forward Brendan Shanahan.

Campbell, the father of Bruins forward Gregory Campbell, drew the ire of Bruins fans last year when he decided not to punish Penguins forward Matt Cooke for his blindside hit on Marc Savard that left the Bruins center with a concussion. The league altered its rules after that incident to make it easier to punish such behavior.

Shanahan played 22 seasons in the NHL — with the Devils, Blues, Whalers, Red Wings and Rangers — before retiring in 2009. He is the only NHL player with 600 goals and 2,000 penalty minutes. He has been serving as the league's vice president of hockey and business operations.

Leetch on M&M: Lucic should be factor

Hall of Fame defenseman Brian Leetch joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday morning to talk about the Stanley Cup finals, which begins Wednesday night in Vancouver.

Leetch, who grew up in Connecticut and played collegiately at Boston College, was asked about the Bruins being underdogs in this series.

"I know they don't feel an underdog," he said. "When you have two good teams playing, sometimes it's just an easier pick to pick the team with more points during the regular season, or they had a couple of better stats. But you look at their stats up and down, these teams — we've almost gotten to 100 games now — are almost identical. Right through the playoffs and the regular season, there's not much that separates them. The goaltending is both excellent, their top players, their depth."

Asked about the Bruins being physical while avoiding penalties, Leetch said: "I think when we talk about the Bruins...

Francona: Still no surgery for Matsuzaka

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that the team does not expect Daisuke Matsuzaka to undergo surgery after getting a second opinion on his injured right elbow in Japan.  

"Diagnostically, everything is kind of the same," Francona said before Wednesday's matinee with the White Sox at Fenway Park. "We have to figure how to best go about this. The player or pitcher has to have some opinion, too. But I think you're always going to go about it non-operatively, first. That just seems like it makes sense to me."

Matsuzaka is expected back in Boston Wednesday night after getting recent consultation in his homeland of Japan. The righthander went on the disabled list on May 17 with a strained right elbow after posting a 3-3 record with a 5.30 ERA in eight appearances for the Red Sox this season.

Lineup: Reddick in right as Drew sits

Josh Reddick is back in the lineup for the Red Sox against the White Sox and tough right-hander Gavin Floyd. Reddick received a call-up from Triple-A Pawtucket last week in order to spell J.D. Drew while the right fielder was nursing an ailing hamstring. Whether Drew is out of the lineup due to injury or the matchup (he is 2-for-14 with four walks and seven strikeouts against Floyd) remains to be seen.
