Stanley Cup makes stops in Sweden, Slovakia

The Stanley Cup continued the European part of its summer with stops in Sweden and Slovakia over the past few days.

Forward Viktor Stalberg had his day with the trophy in Gotherburg, Sweden, on Tuesday after it spent time with forward Marcus Kruger, who celebrated with friends and family at The Soap Bar in Stockholm.

Kruger was joined by defenseman Johnny Oduya, who earlier in the week celebrated with friends at Café Opera in Stockholm. Some in attendance were teammates from Oduya's childhood.

Forward Marian Hossa ate pirogis made by his mother out of the Cup during his weekend with the trophy in Slovakia. His neighbor in Trencin, Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara, made an appearance and took a picture with the Cup alongside Hossa.

Chicago defeated Boston in six games to win the championship.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
