The Baltimore Crab have won the 2016 Gump Cup!

Sami Vatanen’s goal with 5:48 left in game 5 against the Nashville Knights gave them a lead they would not relinquish. And so, in their first playoff appearance in 14 years, after many seasons of rebuilding, the Crab are your new GWMHL champs.

En route to the cup win, the Crabs beat Winnipeg in five and then knocked off the defending three-time champ Salem in a four-game sweep.

Nashville’s Patrick Kane led the league in postseason scoring with 21 points. Knights starter Cory Schneider also led all the goaltending category except the one that matters most in the playoffs — wins. That distinction belonged to the Crab’s Roberto Luongo, who put together a sensational run on the way to his second career championship.
