Carolina Hurricanes Win NHL Stanley Cup
The Stanley Cup will spend the next year on Tobacco Road -- the Carolina Hurricanes are champions of the NHL. The 'Canes beat the Edmonton Oilers, 3-1, in Game 7 at a thunderous RBC Center in Raleigh Monday night. Cam Ward won the Conn Smythe as Playoff MVP.
Congratulations to the 2006 NHL Champion Carolina Hurricanes, beating the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 in a loud, standing room only game 7. Hats off to the Edmonton Oilers for making these NHL Finals a series to remember, especially after losing their star goalie in game 1 of the series.
The Canes, formerly the Whalers of Hartford,Conn., earn their first ever championship. I promise next season to attend a game and get a real feel for the hockey culture. This is for sure, the CUP will not goto that Cold Klondike Country of the North.
Hurricanes' captain Rod Brind'Amour hoists the Stanley Cup after receiving it from Commissioner Gary Bettman.
