(FOX) – Another championship in Tampa Bay, another boat parade, and another trophy fiasco.
The Tampa Bay Lightning celebrated their second consecutive Stanley Cup win on Monday but fans on social media were shocked when a picture circulated of forwarding Pat Maroon holding the 128-year-old trophy with a massive dent in the Cup.
