Dustin Brown brings the Stanley Cup to Ithaca

People from all over the Southern Tier drove to Cass Park Ice Rink in Ithaca to see the Stanley Cup. The lines were backed up all morning and it was quite the scene. Ithaca native and Los Angeles Kings Captain Dustin Brown has been celebrating the 3-1 Stanley Cup Final Victory over the New York Rangers for the past two months now and has had the cup to himself for the last few days.

Brown told the media today that the first time he did this event when they won in 2012. It wasn't that big of a deal in Ithaca then, but now in 2014, everyone knows about number 23.

"It seems like there are more people here than the last time and there was a month to plan for the last time. The way things worked out, I didn't have a lot of things planned so it's kinda cool we put it together in the last second. Going to two Stanley cups and to be able to bring it back I hope it draws some excitement to hockey again and maybe if there is a kid in the line today who wasn't a hockey fan before but is now, that's what it is all about, said Brown.

The mayor of Ithaca pronounced Saturday "Dustin Brown Day" in the city and all the money raised from taking a picture with the cup will benefit the rink and the YMCA of Ithaca.
