Remember the big Bruins bar tab from the infamous celebration party at Foxwoods? Now the marketing folks at Amstel Light want to know which player ordered the lone bottle of Amstel at Shrine nightclub that night.

The Stanley Cup champs racked up a four-hour bar tab that according to the nightclub totaled $156,679.74, and included the now-famous gift of a $100,000.00 bottle of "Midas" champagne in addition to adult beverages like 35 Jager Bombs, three bottles of Captain Morgan, nine bottles of Goose MG, and 136 Bud Lights.

There was also one mystery order for an Amstel Light and now the company wants to know which player has "great taste in light beer" so they can reward him with a supply of Amstel Light for his 4th-of-July or Canadian Independence Day party.

On CSNNE's Sports Tonight, Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton was asked who may have ordered the Amstel Light.

"I really wish I knew," Thornton said. "I don't think anyone on our team drinks Amstel Light." Thornton went on to say that he's going with Shane Hnidy as the Amstel Light lover.

So will someone reveal himself and claim his prize? Stay tuned as the Bruins Stanley Cup adventures continue.
