BOSTON - There will be a special guest in attendance tonight for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final.

The Prime Minister's Office says Stephen Harper will be at the TD Garden in Boston as the Bruins host the Vancouver Canucks in the pivotal matchup.

Vancouver leads the series 2-1 after getting trounced by the Bruins 8-1 in Game 3 on Monday night.

The Canucks are looking to become the first Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup since Montreal won it back in 1993.

Vancouver took the first two games on home ice and hosts Game 5 on Friday.
