Well here in Southwest Louisiana, we rarely see ice but remember the days when we had the Ice Pirates?  Well if you  were hooked on the Pirates when Lake Charles, then you couldn't help but follow this years exciting Stanley Cup Finals. Last night, The Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - While the Boston Bruins beelined across the ice to mob him at the buzzer, Tim Thomas tapped both goalposts, sank to his knees and rubbed the ice in front of his empty goal.

Thomas drew a virtual line in his crease throughout these crazy, contentious Stanley Cup finals, and Boston's brilliant goalie just wouldn't allow the Vancouver Canucks to cross it whenever it really mattered.

After 39 years without a championship, the Bruins ripped the Cup - and several thousand hearts - out of a Canadian city that has waited four decades itself for one sip.

Thomas was just too good, and the Bruins are the NHL's best.

The Cup is headed back to the Hub of Hockey.
