Long-suffering Bruins fans revel in championship glow

The region exploded in collective joy last night as the Bruins won their first championship in almost four decades with a dominating Game Seven victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Thousands of electrified fans rushed into city streets, leaping through the night and embracing strangers in a euphoric celebration.
