The wait is finally over - after 39 years, the Boston Bruins have won the Stanley Cup.

Patrice Bergeron scored two goals and has one assists as Boston posted a 4-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night in Vancouver, claiming its first Stanley Cup since 1982.

Tim Thomas, who recorded the shutout, stopped all 37 shots he faced. Boston was outshot 37-20 and outhit 47-29, but won 29 faceoffs while holding the Canucks to 26 faceoff wins.

Roberto Luongo was once again spotty, giving up three goals on 20 shots in the loss.

Bergeron netted the eventual game-winner 14:37 into the first period, assisted by Brad Marchand of the faceoff. Brad Marchand scored the game's second goal 12:13 into the second period, his 10th of the postseason, assisted by Dennis Seidenberg and Mark Recchi.
