VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Cam Neely is coming home to where his NHL career started in the hopes he can achieve the one goal he failed to attain before his playing days ended.
The Boston Bruins president was born on nearby Vancouver Island and grew up a Canucks' fan in suburban Maple Ridge. He was drafted ninth overall by Vancouver in 1983, but was traded after three seasons to Boston, where the dominant power forward built a Hall of Fame career that was cut short by injuries - and without a Stanley Cup.
It's a hole in his resume that Neely hopes his Bruins can fill. They trail 1-0 going into Game 2 Saturday night.
