Avalanche avoids disaster as Stanley Cup falters

The Colorado meltdown averted disaster, as the Stanley Cup fell on the ice before a team photo was taken. Fortunately, Lord Stanley was fine.

The trophy has endured so much more, and more nightmares are sure to be dealt with in this off-season when spending time with each avalanche member individually. It is an annual event, in which each member of the team receives Lord Stanley for at least one day.

While they were pushed by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the ultimate hockey team won six games on the road. Colorado has always been the best top-down team in the NHL during the regular season. The post-season proved to be a real test, but Tampa couldn’t win the Stanley Cup for the third time in a row, and instead made way for a new champion.

The stacking and celebration of the Stanley Cup was as grand as one might imagine. However, the team’s image has a near-disaster.

Colorado Avalanche kicks off summer Stanley Cup celebration

Nathan McKinnon, for example, already has plans for the cup — and that includes Sidney Crosby. The Penguins star is himself a three-time champion, as well as an Olympic gold medalist. He and McKinnon are good friends.

For the first time, Crosby will have to attend the Stanley McKinnon Cup gala.

Surprisingly, McKinnon gave Crosby some credit for his success in Game 6, noting that a hotel room in Tampa has 87 rooms.

“Yesterday my room number was 1787, so we felt it was destiny. We both love Syed, so we knew we were going to win when I got that room number,” McKinnon said.

Because of this, Sid the Kid has no choice but to drink the cup on more than one occasion this summer.
