Tampa Bay Lightning’s Pat Maroon confesses to dropping the Stanley Cup (Full Story)

In an ESPN St. Louis radio interview on Wednesday, now 3-time Stanley Cup Champion Pat Maroon said the rainy weather made him lose his balance and caused both him and the Cup to take a tumble.

“It was obviously raining and it was wet,” Maroon said. “I went to lift it, and I went backwards with it. I slipped and (Cup keeper) Phil (Pritchard) helped me up and the Cup went back on it’s end.

“People are saying we disrespected the Cup, such BS because if they had half a brain, you know it’s wet outside and you’d think we’d be throwing the Cup around? No. We didn’t disrespect it. It was a complete accident, and we both got hurt. My back has been hurt all day. So, that’s what happened. Nothing crazy.”

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
