Boston Bruins Win Stanley Cup, Tim Thomas Takes Home MVP

Tim Thomas and the Boston Bruins have reached the promised land, defeating the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

After an enchanted regular season, Thomas continued his dominant performances as the B's raced through the playoffs. The Bruins goalie had 761 saves during the four rounds of the playoffs, which was the most in NHL history.

The Conn Smythe trophy was well deserved for Thomas, who has come a long way from his college days at the University of Vermont, where he played alongside Martin St. Louis

Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand both scored two goals apiece for Boston in the decisive game seven, putting the Bruins on the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972.

Fans were jubilant in Beantown and inconsolable in Vancouver, where they were flipping cars and throwing beer bottles at television screens after the final buzzer sounded on Wednesday night.
