Bruins Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, and Shawn Thornton took a trip down to the casino following Saturday's rolling rally in Boston. The players brought the Stanley Cup with them to a party at the Foxwood's club "Shrine", where they proceeded to pour some of a $100,000 bottle of champagne into to bowl of the trophy, as Thornton (left) and Chara did above.
A press release describes the action:
"[Shrine] Owners Ed Kane, Joe Kane and Randy Greenstein hand delivered a 30 liter bottle of Ace of Spades “Midas” champagne, costing more than $100,000. The bottle, which is one of six in existence, was double the size of the 15 liter Ace of Spades brut that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban purchased for his team after their NBA Championship victory just one week ago. The bottle, which was signed by every Bruins team member in attendance, will be on display at High Rollers and will be raffled off at a later date to benefit the Bruins foundation."
So there you have it. Bruins players were back in Boston in plenty of time to be honored by the Red Sox at Fenway Park Sunday afternoon.
