Tampa Bay Lightning put massive dent in Stanley Cup during title celebrations

SEE IT: Stanley Cup gets huge damage throughout Tampa’s event initially appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Not even the Capitals might cause this much damage on bad Lord Stanley’s Cup throughout their title celebration around the city in 2018. 

Year 2, following Tampa Bay’s repeat has actually been double the quantity of rowdy events for the Lightning, who won without fans in the Toronto bubble last season. Finishing the back-to-back champion quote following a truncated offseason and an aggressive season schedule requires much more of an event. 

The Cup will direct to Montreal for repair services and a breather from the Tampa bender this previous week. The gamers will have it back for more scheduled enjoyable this weekend, according to Tampa Bay Times press reporter Eduardo A. Encina. 

Obviously, Lightning star Nikita Kucherov was prepared from the Video game 5 interview where he was currently completely celebration mode without a search and Bud Light can in hand. That sort of energy has actually just overflowed and after that some, regrettably for The Cup, not without an expense.

This sort of enjoyable definitely calls the Caps’ notorious bender fresh back into the memory bank. Alex Ovechkin and business bathing in the cities’ water fountains, beers being consumed through t-shirts at the parade, and beers being consumed while being paraded at regional video games. In truth, there was even a little damage seen on the Stanley Cup at one point throughout Washington’s events — however definitely absolutely nothing near the sort of shape Tampa bent. 

At 34.5 pounds, Lord Stanley’s Cup is no paperless trophy like some of the cups and shrines handed out in the other leagues. All in all, though, NHL’s top prize has definitely taken a beaten for many years. 

A fast transportation above the border and a basic repair and the Stanley Cup will be back much better than ever.
