VIDEO: The Cup Stops Here
Bruins Coach Claude Julien, who has lived in Lexington since joining the Bs in 2007, brought the Stanley Cup to the Lexington Police Station for photo ops with the folks who serve his community.
Boston Bruins Coach Claude Julien and the Stanley Cup spent Wednesday afternoon at the Lexington Police Department.
Julien, who has lived in town since joining the Bs in 2007, brought the Cup to the station because they thought the people who serve the community deserve the chance to see it.
From about noontime through 2 p.m., members of the LPD, Fire Department and Post Office, along with members of their immediate families, filed through the LPD. Some got up close and personal with the Cup, while others cautioned young hockey players not to touch it, lest they curse their chances of claiming the NHL championship one day.
“It doesn’t get old. Winning the Cup doesn’t get old, but sharing it with people doesn’t get old either,” said Julien. “We live here in Lexington, and the Lexington police, firemen and Post Office people that serve our community I thought deserve that opportunity.”
It was among the final stops for the Cup as the Bruins championship tour winds to a close and the team prepares for the official start of camp next Friday.
At the police station, the Cup was placed on a sturdy table without wheels, a precaution taken to prevent a repeat of last week, when Lord Stanley's Cup tumbled from a table in Newfoundland.
The Cup has almost fully recovered from its fall, and final repairs will be done when it goes in to be engraved, according to a member of the Stanley Cup security squad.
