Here & Now Guest:


Hockey fans in Boston believe the planets are aligned for a Boston Bruin victory tomorrow night in decisive game 7 of the Stanley Cup, even if it's played on the Vancouver Canuck's home ice.

That's because there will be a full lunar eclipse tomorrow, just like in 2004, when the Red Sox won the World Series.

The Bruins have never played for the cup in a game 7, and they haven't won a cup since 1972. If they do, Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessey says we'll be in the midst of "the High Renaissance of Boston sports," with all four Boston sports teams winning championships in the past few years.

This segment aired on June 14, 2011.
