Canucks travel East

here was nothing random
about the Vancouver Canucks' 2,500-mile flight to Boston.
      There never is when the Canucks hit the road.
      Like everything surrounding a team that is two wins away from
its first Stanley Cup title, the travel to the East Coast has been
carefully mapped out. From how and when they get there, to when and
what they eat, to the sleeping arrangements once they arrive and
get ready to play the Bruins in Game 3 of the finals on Monday
night.
      All the plans have been rooted in science, with players even
wearing specialized bracelets throughout early season road trips to
measure circadian rhythms – internal body clocks – and how they are
affected by travel.
