In true Champa Bay fashion, the Lightning partied with the people yesterday via a kickass boat parade! Thousands lined the Riverwalk to welcome their back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning! There was one problem, the Stanley Cup did not escape unscathed. Nikita Kucherov took the cup on a jet ski ride but the Cup never became airborn like Tom Brady's toss of the Lombardi Trophy earlier this year. Pat Maroon was photographed holding the mangled bowl of the traveling Stanley Cup, but there is no evidence that he was the culprit.....YET.
