VANCOUVER - The Green Men, Vancouver's fanatical hockey fans, are taking their love of the Canucks to Boston for Games 3 and 4.

Force and Scully, who dress in head-to-toe green spandex body stockings, met with a few fans of their own in downtown Vancouver today to announce they've secured a sponsor to pay for their trip to Boston next week.

The duo work at a Vancouver radio station but have kept their identities a secret.

Fan Lisa Knoblauch (Nob-loc) says she wanted to meet the men in green so she could get a picture with them to post on her Facebook page.

Andrew Nicholson of New Westminster says he's been a Canucks fan since he went to his first game at age one and that the Green Men add some fun to the sport he loves.

While some people have criticized the Green Men for dressing a cutout of country singer Carrie Underwood in a Canucks jersey, they say they first cleared that antic with her husband, Nashville Predators' forward Mike Fisher.
