Tampa Bay Lightning Vectorious With CCM!
New Vector Skate and Stick #1 with Stanley Cup Winners
Montreal, Quebec, June 9, 2004... With Game 7 being played in Tampa Bay, it was only fitting for the Lightning to win their first Stanley Cup in dramatic fashion at home. Players and fans alike were overwhelmed as the Lightning players hoisted the Stanley Cup for the first time ever and proved to everyone that they had what it takes to win. They also had the best tools to do it, with the majority of players using CCM© high-performance equipment.
Throughout the season, the Tampa Bay bench was filled with players using CCM© Vector™ products. And the new Vector™ Pro skate led the way. The fastest growing skate in the NHL was used by 11 Lightning players, including postseason leading scorer and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Brad Richards.
The story for the Company's Vector™ 110 and New Vector™ 120 stick is equally as dominant. Unseating the Easton Synergy, the Vector one-piece stick was the #1 stick with 10 of the Lightning players choosing Vector™, including Vincent Lecavalier, who finished the Stanley Cup Finals with 9 goals and 7 assists.
Beyond being the #1 stick and skate, CCM was also the #1 helmet, glove, pant and official uniform supplier for Tampa Bay Lightning players during the Stanley Cup Finals.
