At the game, I noticed something that intrigued me, never saw it before (because the only celebrations I had seen before were on TV).

The referees stayed on the ice, all the way up to the Cup presentation. (I did not notice if they were still on the ice after the Cup was presented to Brown, as I watching the players celebrate.) They were all together, off to the side, just observing.

It seems to me that this incident may set a new protocol, where one of the referees or linesman are tasked with collecting the game puck at the end of the game. I mean, if they are going to be there anyway, why not?
