Former Penguins Oskar SundqvistDavid Perron and Robert Bortuzzo won the Stanley Cup with the Blues in Game 7 in Boston on Wednesday night.

"There are so many emotions," Sundqvist said in a Swedish interview with "I could barely feel my arms and legs the last 10 minutes. It's so f------ fun! It is a magical feeling."

This is technically Sundqvist's second Stanley Cup win, but the first time he'll have his name engraved on the Cup. He played in 18 regular season games and two playoff games with the Penguins during the 2016 Cup run.

Sundqvist is the 15th Swedish player to win more than one Stanley Cup, and the first Swede to win Cups with multiple teams. He had this to say on Twitter after the win:

Sundqvist finished the postseason with four goals and five assists in 25 games.

Perron and the Golden Knights made it to the Final last season, and lost to the Capitals in five games. He was pumped when he finally got his hands on the Cup:

Perron posted these messages on Twitter:

Perron scored seven goals and nine assists in 26 playoff games.

Bortuzzo was a healthy scratch for Game 7, but he did score two goals in 17 postseason games, including one in the Final. He went with a big "WHEE HOO!" when he finally raised the Cup, giving the television broadcast censors a break for once:

Bortuzzo shared this moment with Laila, a Blues superfan battling the rare immunodeficiency disease HLH, after the game:

This was also the first Stanley Cup win for Joe Vitale, who now works as a color analyst for the Blues' radio broadcasts.
