Boston Bruins Take Game 7; Vancouver Not Happy

The Boston Bruins finished the Vancouver Canucks in seven games. Now that the NBA and NHL playoffs are through, it’s a bit depressing thinking that baseball is the only sport to look forward to. However, this was certainly a stellar NHL playoffs and keeping a playoff beard for a week (the Red Wings failed me) I thought was quite the accomplishment. Congrats to Boston, taking home their first Stanley Cup Championship in 38 seasons behind¬† goalie and Flint, Michigan native, Tim Thomas who finished with his 2nd shutout of the Stanley Cup series. Bravo, fellow Michigander.

A game 7 loss must have been a major disappointment for a Vancouver team favored to win and a fan base dying for a championship. Take for example the fan willing to pay $18,000 for a lower bowl ticket.  Canadians certainly love their Hockey, enough for several riots to break out and people looking like crazed fans.
