Victory Then Oops

from the CP,

The Memorial Cup was in two pieces, which meant there was more of it for the Spokane Chiefs to hoist above their heads.

Spokane beat the host Kitchener Rangers 4-1 to win the 90th Memorial Cup on Sunday.

Captain Chris Bruton lifted the trophy over his head twice and kissed it and then as he was about to hand it to teammate Trevor Glass, the cup became separated from its heavy base, which fell to the ice.

While that prompted boos from spectators at Memorial Auditorium already disappointed that their home team lost, the good news is that it’s a replica trophy.
