On Wednesday night, as the puck dropped for the third period of Game Seven in the Stanley Cup Finals, the streets of Oak Bluffs were, for the most part, quiet.

The real roar was inside Seasons on Circuit avenue where the game was showing on no fewer than nine televisions. As the third period drew to a close the crowd pressed closer to the TVs, their cheers easily outpacing the fans on the televisions. The sound wasn’t consistent in nature, it rose in volume when Boston got a power play and formed actual words (“MVP! MVP!”) when Bruins’ goalie Tim Thomas made yet another brilliant save, but it was always there.

By the time there were forty-four seconds left in the game, the roar hit delirium levels. There was no suspense left for the fans, or, for that matter, the teams: They knew exactly what was going to happen next. Boston had locked up the win three minutes ago with their fourth unanswered goal.

When the final second ticked off, a bottle of Corona was sprayed àlá champagne and, in the back of the restaurant, a homemade Stanley Cup, crafted by Oak Bluffs resident Jack Holmes out of sauna tubes, tinfoil and “my salad bowl” was tossed around.

“Hockey’s just the most exciting sport to me,” said viewer Scott Carroll, standing outside of Seasons as the celebration shifted to Circuit avenue. Mr. Carroll had watched the first two periods from the comfort of his home but came down to Seasons for the third because “I wanted to be in the crowd.”

Mr. Carroll wasn’t alone in wanting to soak up the feel of the evening. The Lombardo family, mom, Carla, and children, Stefania, Giancarlo and Nadia, visiting the Island for a weekend Chappy wedding, came out to Seasons to watch history being made (the family made a quick run back home between periods to change into pajamas).

“We’re lifelong Bruins fans,” said Mrs. Lombardo. “To be here with my cubs [she paused midsentence to point out to this reporter her use of the word] is so important to us, you have no idea.”

Giancarlo, described his reaction to the win as “shocked.”

Mr. Carroll was less surprised. “They worked so hard,” he said, “and the playoffs.”

He trailed off between sentences, searching for the right words, but the collective noise took over once again and his answer was swallowed up by the crowd.
