Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup!


For the first time since 1972, the Boston Bruins have won the Stanley Cup!!! It is the 6th time in franchise history, and first time for a seven-game series. Bruins goalkeeper, 37-year old Tim Thomas was named MVP, and was sensational stuffing the most potent offense in the NHL! Thomas stopped all 37 shots the Vancouver Canucks took in game 7 for a 4-0 victory, and posted his second shut-out in the Stanley Cup Finals. Thomas stopped an amazing 238 of the Canucks’ 246 shots in the Stanley Cup Finals series for a .967 save percentage. Patrice Bergeron and rookie Brad Marchand scored two goals apiece in the game 7! Read the remarks and watch the videos!

”I went even further than I thought,” Thomas said. ”I was scared, I won’t lie. I had nerves yesterday and today, and I faked it as best as I could, and I faked it all the way to the Stanley Cup.”

”If I was going to do it any way, it would have to be the hardest way possible,” said Thomas, who played overseas and in the minors before finally getting his NHL break in 2005. ”Three Game 7s in the playoffs, and to have to win it on the road in the final.”

”We got the first goal, and we knew that would be important coming here,” said 43-year-old Mark Recchi, who plans to retire after winning the Stanley Cup with his third franchise. ”If they got any chances, Timmy was there, and it was just scary how good he was.” (courtesy foxsports)
