The Stanley Cup has taken a bow at the Massachusetts State House.
State political leaders honored the Boston Bruins on Thursday, hours before the team was set to open the NHL regular season and begin its championship defense.
Accompanied by Bruins president Cam Neely and team principal owner Charlie Jacobs, the Stanley Cup made stops on Thursday in the governor's office, House chamber and Senate lobby.
House Speaker Robert DeLeo noted that many historic events had occurred in the chamber over the years, but said as a lifelong Bruins fan this one stood out for him.
Senate President Therese Murray read a proclamation congratulating the Bruins on their first championship in 39 years. She noted the accomplishments of many of the players, but needed a little help in pronouncing the name of playoff scoring leader David Krejci.
