Boston Bruins Win 2011 Stanley Cup Championship

After a grueling nine-months of hockey, the season is finally over and the Boston Bruins are the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions. On the Vancouver Canucks' home ice for Game 7, the Boston Bruins won, 4-0, for their first Stanley Cup championship since 1972.

Patrice Bergeron scored the first goal of the game late in the first period and added a second goal, shorthanded this time, in the second period. Brad Marchand also added two goals in the game, one in the second and one in the third, for 11 overall in the postseason. He also assisted on Bergeron's first goal.

Boston goalie Tim Thomas pitched a shutout on 37 shots faced.  Based on his strong play throughout the playoffs, he won the Conn Smythe Trophy. He is just the second American player to win the award. The other was the New York Rangers' Brian Leetch in 1994, the year the Canucks last appeared and lost in the Stanley Cup Finals.
