It's the seven game that decided the Stanley Cup winner, It is the Boston Bruins, there is no exodus yet of the Canucks, where tens and thousands of Canuck fans have gathered in sold-out Rogers Arena.

The mood in some parts of downtown Vancouver has turned tense following a 4-0 Boston Bruins victory.

With Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand scoring twice each, the tens of thousands of fans lining downtown streets saw their dream of the hometown team hoisting the Cup fade away.

The combination of Bergeron's offence who is the Bruins most consistent forward through the playoffs - and Thomas's goaltending earned Boston its sixth Stanley Cup and first in 39 years with a 4-0 win Wednesday night.

Roberto Luongo, the President's Trophy winner and the regular season champion Daniel and Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks- just couldn't overcome Boston's team play.

Bergeron, won the world junior gold and last year winning Olympic gold in the same Rogers Arena where he hoisted the Cup.

It's been since the days of Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito that the Boston Bruins last won a Stanley Cup, back in 1972. They'd been to the final five times since and came up empty.

The Canucks made one previous Game 7 appearance in the Stanley Cup final, dropping a 3-2 decision to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden in 1994. . . . The Bruins had never contested a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup final before. . . . Coming into the game, the only clubs to win Game 7 on the road in the Stanley Cup final after the home team won the first six games were the 1971 Montreal Canadiens, who defeated the Chicago Blackhawks.

A Canucks fan in a jersey and goalie mask, outside a jam-packed Malone's Sports Bar, wept openly. For the Canucks, it's 40 years and counting.
