As the Stanley Cup was raised high over the head of Zdeno Chara in 2011, the Rogers Arena in Vancouver was full of Canucks fans.

Not a whole lot of Bruins fans were able to enjoy the moment in person, but Whitey Bulger did.

According to The Boston Liberal, an FBI agent who works in Boston followed Bulger for several weeks before making an arrest to find out who he was associating with during his time on the run.

As the agent was tailing him, Bulger traveled for over 20 hours from Santa Monica to Vancouver.

Why? Because it's the Cup.

Bulger reportedly drove to Canada, got tickets into the Rogers Arena, and saw his beloved Bruins win the Stanley Cup in person.

Exactly one week later, the now 83-year-old was arrested after many years on the run.
