BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Boston Bruins goalie and former Vermont Catamount Tim Thomas has brought the Stanley Cup to the streets of Burlington.

Crowds gathered to watch Thomas march in a parade Saturday morning. Thomas also made a few comments, thanking the National Guard and communities for all their help in helping the state recover from Tropical Storm Irene.
