It took 39 years but after a tremendous 7 game finals series, the Boston Bruins are once again Stanley Cup champions. Up until tonight, the wins in this series all came from the home teams. The most dominant wins came from Boston in game four (4-0) and game six (5-2), basically proving detractors of Canucks goalie Robert Luongo correct in their assessments of his inconsistent play.

Try to find your happy place Vancouver.

Tim Thomas continued to be the man of the hour stopping ?? shots on his way to cementing the Conn Smythe trophy as the MVP of the play-offs. Thomas ends the play-offs with 16 wins, a GAA of 1.98, a .940 save % and 4 shutouts. Patrice Bergeron scored his fifth goal of the post-season late in the first to give the Bruins the 1-0 lead over Vancouver and grinded out a short-handed goal with less than 3 minutes to go in the second that made it 3-0. Brad Marchand scored the Bruins other two goals and notched an assist on Bergeron’s first goal to end his post season with 11 goals and 8 assists. Center Dave Krejci though not scoring tonight led Boston and the league with 23 points (12g, 11a).

A big congrats Mark Recchi who gets his name on the cup for the 3rd time in what is sure to be the final game in his long 21 year career.
