There are a lot of great story lines that were wrapped up last night, but easily the best of the bunch is that Tomas Kaberle will see his name engraved on the Stanley Cup. Congratulations Kaba, you deserve it.
Even if Canucks fans, this time green with envy, decided to do their best Montreal imitation and burn cars (some of which were police cars), injure Bruins fans in the vicinity, smoke pot in front of young children, and fight riot police, there were a lot of fun moments that I'll remember. Mostly, I'll remember smiling because the Canucks lost, but Tim Thomas and Mark Recchi both defied standard linear time to put in great performances, not to mention the great efforts by Brad Marchand, Zdeno Chara, and Patrice Bergeron.
