At the end of every Stanley Cup Final, CBC wraps up its coverage by putting together one of the best montages you’ll ever see, piecing together some of the best moments of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Call it their version of “One Shining Moment” only without the song. This year, it’s more meaningful to me as the Boston Bruins have ended a 39 year drought bringing the Cup back to New England. CBC does a great job with this every year and to be honest, I hadn’t thought about embedding them even though they’re readily available on YouTube.
So without further delay, here’s this year’s closing montage introduced by host Ron MacLean, done to U2′s “One” and finishing off with the closing credits.
Very impressed. It also means no hockey until October. I do wish NBC would do something similar instead of run off the air so East Coast affiliates can get to local news. Maybe with the new contract next year, we’ll see something similar in the States. We can only hope.
