In the wake of Mason Raymond's injury, Tambellini will be bumped to the active roster and will play tonight in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals for Vancouver:
Tambellini, who will play in Game 7 (8 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, RDS) in place of the injured Mason Raymond, grew up around the Canucks of the 1990s. His father, current Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini, worked for the organization as the Director of Public and Media Relations, serving in that capacity for the Canucks' run to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 1994.
"I was at my house with my mom, my dad was in New York, and it was heartbreaking," Tambellini said, recalling his memories of watching the Rangers beat Vancouver in Game 7 of the '94 Final. "It was hard to watch. I remember pulling my hair out. Hopefully we turn that around tonight."
Steve Tambellini can't wait to see his son try.
"I'm so excited for him just to have the opportunity to play for a Stanley Cup in a Game 7. It's an amazing day," Steve Tambellini told NHL.com. "He doesn't need any advice from me. I'm just going to make sure I've got a good seat and enjoy the game."

Bettor Hits on All 12 UFC 131 Fights, Makes $51,547
Picking winners in mixed martial arts is never easy. The sport is unpredictable, the fighters at the highest levels are usually fairly evenly matched, and every event has a few surprises.
That's why what one bettor did this weekend is so impressive: He got all 12 fights right at UFC 131, and put his money where his predictions were. The online sports book Bodog.eu confirmed on Monday that a bettor (who has not been publicly identified) put down $200 on a 12-fight parlay, went 12-for-12, and made $51,547.
Very impressive, especially to go 12 for 12 gambling on MMA.
I hit a 6 team NFL parlay for $300 a few years ago in Vegas but nothing like this.
Do any of my MGO brethern have some good gambling win or loss stories?
USMNT v. Guadeloupe
I think Canada beat Panama, so that helps something or other. Nevermind, Canada derped its way into a draw.
Starting Lineup: USA starting lineup: Howard - Bocanegra, Goodson, Lichaj, Cherundolo, Dempsey, Jones, Bradley, Donovan, Wondolowski, Altidore
You guys can thank me later....
I wish I could see a full-ride scholly as a punishment for being good at something. This guy is an idiot.
