The scuffed-look­ing matte fin­ish rep­re­sents his raw­ness. The fierce panda knight on the left cheek hon­ors his nick­name: Panda. – MATT LARKIN

40, had waited 22 sea­sons, 1,612 reg­u­larsea­son games and

214 play­off games to lift the Cup. ‘Ovi’ had the best cel­e­bra­tion, but Bourque owns the game’s most iconic Cup raise.
