By: Melissa Toupin

It isn't a great morning for Bruins fans who are waking up and realizing that it wasn't all a bad dream. Monday night the Chicago Blackhawks skated away with the Stanley Cup. 

The game was a nail biter to the very end. With less than two minutes left in the game B's fans were ready to pack up  and prepare for game 7. 17 seconds and two Chicago goals would change all that. The Blackhawks skated away with the Stanley Cup on Boston ice leaving Bruins fans in mourning.

“It was terrible. I don't know what to tell you. It was terrible. I'm bummed out,” said Bill Krawczyk of Warwick.

“With injuries and what not…I mean we were sort of not the favorites in the beginning,” said Michael McGann also of Warwick.

Fans aren't the only ones who are crushed. The team that stood 'Boston Strong' as a city rallied around them during its time of need is left feeling sick to their stomachs over the loss. 

“Like I said, to give up goals, makes you want to throw up at the end,” said Bruins defensive man Andrew Ference.

 Area businesses, too, are feeling the pain as the cup slipped through the Bruins gloves. Providence's LaSalle Bakery tossing in the towel on dozens of black and gold hockey puck brownies that were made in anticipation of a win.

“I think today would have been incredible because we had ideas of making some cakes, we had a lot of good ideas more hockey pucks, a lot of other different things but we'll save them for next year,” said Michael Dellagrotta, director of production for the bakery.

Even though the Bruins loss has left a bad taste in fans mouths home town pride always leaves them wanting more. Many fans are already looking ahead to next season.
