You've waited 39 years for the Cup. So how do you feel? Send us your Bruins photos. Share your thoughts on the season and the journey.
Behind a 37-save performance from goalie Tim Thomas, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1972 with a 4-0 shutout of the Vancouver Canucks. Thomas won the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP, Mark Recchi retired after winning his third Cup and four decades of pain were purged for Bruins fans. So how do you feel? Did this invoke memories of Orr flying through the air after scoring the winning goal against the St. Louis Blues in Game 4 of the 1970 finals?

Delighted that his beloved Boston Bruins are in the seventh game of the NHL Finals Wednesday, town parks and recreation employee Jim Asam mowed the team symbol into a grassy hillside at Milford High School, his wife, Phoebe, told Milford Patch. The image is best seen from above, probably, but lacking access to the roof or a fire truck ladder, Milford Patch did the best we could. UPDATED: Thank you, Phoebe Asam, for providing us a bird's eye pic, and the creator in action!
The Asam family on Highland Street painted their garage door with the Bruins emblem eight years ago.
Phoebe Asam married a man, Jim, who's a die-hard Bruins fan. He has a Bruins plate on the truck. He painted the garage door by hand eight years ago with the Bruins emblem. Now he has an NHL Finals Beard, just like the Bruins players. Don't ask if the Bruins will win Wednesday. This household on Highland Street is thinking only positive thoughts. When the Bruins bring the Stanley Cup home, Phoebe Asam explained, at least one of the Asams will be at the airport to greet them.
