He went on to score one more time in the second period, with teammate Brad Marchand also putting two in the net throughout the game. Goalie Tim Thomas earned himself a shutout. The final score of Wednesday’s game (June 15) was 4-0, bringing to an end the extremely physical competition. Game seven alone racked up a total of 76 hits compared to only 58 shots on net.   Team captain Zdeno Chara was the first to lift the trophy in celebration, albeit in front of a disappointed Vancouver crowd. Congratulations to the the Bruins and the entire city of Boston, whose residents — we imagine — will be lifting a celebratory Sam Adams (or several) this evening.
