Bruins Win!!!

Congratulations to the Boston Bruins on winning the Stanley Cup! It's nice to see that the cup is headed back to Boston for the first time in almost 40 years. This is the first time that I have seen it in my lifetime (that I can remember) and it's sweet. I wish I was in Boston to join in the celebration. 

Final score, Game 7, Stanley Cup Finals: Bruins 4, Canucks 0

Thanks to the two-goal performances of Marchand and linemate Patrice Bergeron, as well as another spectacular performance in net by Tim Thomas (37 saves), the Boston Bruins are at last rejoicing again.

The Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks tonight at Rogers Arena, 4-0, becoming the Stanley Cup champions for the first time since the big, bad glory days of Orr and Espo in 1972. The victory ends a 39-year title drought and gives the Bruins a place on the pedestal (or the at least the duck boats) alongside the Celtics (2007), Patriots (2001, '03, '04) and Red Sox (2004, '07) as champions during this unprecendented era of all-around professional sports success in the city.

The victory was the Bruins' first here during the series in three tries here in Vancouver, which had won Games 1, 2, and 5 here despite scoring a total of just five goals on their home ice and eight overall in the series. The Bruins won all three games at the Garden by a 17-3 advantage, but winning in Vancouver was a tall challenge.
