With the Bruins winning their first Stanley Cup since 1972 Wednesday night against the Canucks, several members of the Patriots took to Twitter in the wake of the win to congratulate their sporting brethren:

BenJarvus Green-Ellis: “Congrats to the Bruins for bringing home the Stanley Cup and ending their 39 year drought!!!”

Julian Edelman: “Had a blast watching the B’s this year. Congrats to the players and coaches! … Just left sonny mclceans … Boston fans are awesome.. And yes the fire alarm was pulled, people were dancing, and it was raining champagne.”

Brian Hoyer: “Congratulations Bruins! Stanley cup champions! What a run!”

Kyle Love: “If [you] don’t watch hockey tune in to history in the making with the Boston Bruins! It’s pretty good — I’m enjoying myself watching it! … Let’s go BRUINS! CLAP, CLAP, CLAP CLAP CLAP!”

Zoltan Mesko: “Game Time! Way to go B’s!!!”

Vince Wilfork: “Man this game is over!!!! Bruins did it big!! Congrats guys… Boston is a Beast!! … Man what state has 7 championship trophies in pro sports over the past 10 years….[I don’t know] about yours but mine does. Boston does it Big.”

Rob Gronkowski: “Congrats to the Bruins for winning the cup.”

The Patriots’ official Twitter feed also chimed in: “Welcome to Title Town, Lord Stanley.”

Of course, more than a few Patriots fans took note of the fact that now their team has the  longest championship drought in the city ‘€” the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins have all won a title since New England last took home the Vince Lombardi Trophy in February 2005.

Matt Fraschella: “Tell the Pats that they are up next; Pats with longest championship drought of Boston’s big 4 – 6 yrs, 4 mo, 9 days.”
