Bruins win Stanley Cup with 4-0 Game 7
Question of the Day
The Stanley Cup has never ridden so high.
Six-foot-nine Bruins captain Zdeno Chara _ the tallest player in the league _ will get the first trip around the ice with the NHL championship trophy. He’ll no doubt pass it off quickly to 43-year-old Mark Recchi _ now a three-time winner, who has said he is going to retire.
It’s a final. Bruins 4, Canucks 0.
The Bruins have their championship caps on, and after a brief celebration they’re going through the handshake line now.
Kevin Bieksa tried to get in the way, but Marchand scored playoff goal No. 11.
The Canucks just had their second power play. In their first, they gave up a shorthanded goal but didn’t get a shot off themselves. This time they fired off three shots on goal. (And also gave up another dangerous shorthanded opportunity to Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.)
Still 3-0, Boston. Six minutes to go.
Josh Beckett threw a one-hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays, but Red Sox manager Terry Francona knew it wasn’t exactly a priority among Boston fans.
“Think anybody will be watching our game,” he asked reporters beforehand.
Francona checked in with Bruins coach Claude Julien during the week to wish him luck. The Red Sox skipper admitted he didn’t know much about hockey, even though he grew up outside of Pittsburgh and his father, former major leaguer Tito Francona, ran an ice rink after he retired where the Penguins sometimes practiced.
