The Stanley Cup has returned home!

Fresh off their flight back from Tampa Bay, the Colorado Avalanche safely arrived at Denver International Airport with some precious cargo in hand. Avs captain Gabriel Landeskog carried the Cup off the plane and hoisted it over his head to cheers from fans and airport employees.

Get used to it! The best trophy in sports should be making its way all over Denver and Colorado in the coming days. Let the party roll on, with the parade on Thursday the perfect ending to what should be a wild few days.

After waiting five years for NHL debut, Shane Bowers got hurt just 1:46 in
