Young and Old, Bruins Celebrate Cup In Vancouver

VANCOUVER (CBS)  – The Boston Bruins celebrated their first Stanley Cup in 39 years in style, and they did it in the visitor’s locker room.

The Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 in Game 7 Wednesday night to bring Boston their first Stanley Cup Championship since 1972. Mark Recchi was a mere four-years-old then. Tyler Seguin was 20-years away from being born.

Both celebrated like the best of them Wednesday night.

For Recchi, it was his final game in the NHL, as he is set to retire after a 23-year-career.

As for Seguin, the rookie is living a dream.

“I dont know if it’s sunk it yet,” the 19-year-old Seguin said. “It means the world, it’s a dream come true. I’m just happy to celebrate with these guys; we’re a family.”

“I can’t wait to get it started, I can’t wait to shave my beard either,” Seguin told WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche on the ice, ready to celebrate with his teammates.

Of course, Seguin is under the legal drinking age in the US, but found a loophole to celebrate the victory.

“It’s Canada Baby!” the rookie told Roche.
