Cup Connections

Two former Terriers celebrated Cup wins over the weekend.

We’ll start with Chris Bourque (right) of the Hershey Bears who clinched the AHL’s Calder Cup with a 4-1 win Friday night over the Manitoba Moose in game six of their playoff series.

Bourque, who had 73 points during the regular season, assisted on the Bears’ first goal and then scored the game-winner, beating former BC goalie Cory Schneider with a one-timed blast. Bourque, who was named the game’s number one star, finished with 21 (5-16) post-season points, fifth best in the AHL this season.

John Curry’s name won’t go on the Stanely Cup as he played in only three regular season games for the NHL champion Penguins and saw no playoff action following his call-up from WilkesBarre/Scranton. But the former All-American goalie and 2007 Hockey East Player of the Year was on hand and in uniform when Pittsburgh won game seven of the Stanley Cup final on Friday. Curry celebrated on the ice with Penguins.
