Bruins Win Stanley Cup
The Boston Bruins won Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Vancouver over the Canucks by the score of 4-0. Goalie Tim Thomas was fantastic, making 37 saves to secure the shutout victory for Boston. The championship is the Bruins sixth overall, and first since 1972. Here is more from the AP and foxsports.com.
Thomas made 37 saves in the second shutout of his landmark finals performance, Patrice Bergeron and rookie Brad Marchand scored two goals apiece, and the Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 Wednesday night for their first championship since 1972.
”I think I went even further than I thought,” Thomas said. ”I never envisioned three Game 7s in one playoff series and still being able to come out on top.”
While it’s the sixth Stanley Cup for Boston, Bruin fans have endured a lot since 1972. Their last five trips to the Finals ended in defeat. The sixth time was a charm for one of the “Original Six.”
Unfortunately, the game wasn’t very exciting after Boston’s third goal in the second period. Don’t tell that to Bruin fans though, they’re still celebrating.
