Stanley’s big weekend

The Stanley Cup tour continues, and this weekend it spent time with two players who played a big role in bringing it to Los Angeles. Dustin Brown had the Cup in Ithaca, N.Y., while Jonathan Quick had it in Connecticut. Some of the pictures that come out of these trips are just priceless. Here are a couples stories about the homecomings of Brown and Quick, followed by a couple pictures.

Also, the updated “Stanley Cup Tracker” map can be found by clicking here.
