"That's not the Stanley Cup, is it?" one man, dressed in business attire, asked his friend.
"No, that's definitely not the real thing," the other man responded.
He was wrong. Standing on the busy Midtown intersection was Boston forward Patrice Bergeron, carrying the most famous trophy in all of hockey.
The Stanley Cup was in town.
On Friday morning, Bergeron -– along with teammates Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas, as well as the team’s newest piece of hardware -– had a whirlwind New York City adventure.
