For Canucks fans Sandi Fox and Sam Fisher, the Vancouver team just can't lose Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals Saturday.

"They'd better win," Fox said Friday from her home in Maple Ridge, B.C. "It's going to be our wedding gift. They can't lose on my wedding day."

Instead of the casual ceremony the two had planned on May 22, the couple will now exchange vows Saturday night between the first and second period of the Stanley Cup finals.

"It's perfect for us," Fox said.

Fox said she's been a fan of the Canucks for about a decade, but Fisher, a New Zealand native, is new to hockey.

She entered a contest called What Would You Do to See the Canucks in the Finals, run by the local newspaper, The Province, and Best Buy, after her aunt sent her a link to it.

"I thought it was funny," she said. "We just entered, not really thinking we'd win."

The couple will add some hockey-inspired items to their wardrobe for the big day -- along with her wedding dress, Fox will have Canucks nails, coloured hair extensions and her flowers will be Canucks-themed. Fisher will wear a Canucks jersey under his suit.

They still had a small reception at a restaurant on May 22 for relatives who had already made the trip from New Zealand and Fox said they're now fans of Canada's beloved sport.

The two will be married in a suite at Rogers Arena. They have about 20 minutes to get ready, the ceremony will take between five and seven minutes, "and then back to the game."

And Fox has a prediction for the series.

"I think they're going to bring it home to win it in five," she said.

The game between the Canucks and Boston Bruins gets underway at 5 p.m. PT. The Canucks won the first game of the series, 1-0.

Other contest entries included Colin Alexander, 25, who dressed up as Lady Gaga, complete with glitter in his beard, and 15-year-old Riam Kim-McLeod, who swam across False Creek in Vancouver and then ran to Rogers Arena in a mini biathlon.

Other people said they would eat tarantulas, dress up in skimpy costumes to perform athletic feats, and another man said, "I will clean out toilets or urinals. I will kiss people's feet. I will do anything to win."
