VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Green Men–the body-suited Canuck superfans named Sully and Force–are excited about their impending trip to Boston for Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

"We're coming, we're going to be loud, we're going to bring it. So be ready," Sully said before the start of Game 2 at Rogers Arena. "It's going to be relentless."

"I'm very excited about coming to Boston," Force told us. "It will be a great series, a great game. Canucks take it in four."

Today, the Green Men eschewed the Ben Affleck cardboard cut-out from Game 1 and brought a really old school Boston icon along ... Norm from Cheers.

In a press conference in Vancouver on Friday
, Sully and Force announced that online travel company Travelzoo will pick up the tab for around $3,700 bill for the airfare to Boston, hotel costs, and tickets to Game 3 and 4 at the Garden.

"Travelzoo was the first company that was really cool about it," Force said regarding the sponsorship deal on Friday. "They wanted to make sure we got to Boston."
