The Carolina Hurricanes are Stanley Cup Champions

Another pick of mine was wrong, as last night the Carolina Hurricanes won Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Edmonton Oilers 3-1, to now be proclaimed Stanley Cup Champions. I had thought that the Oilers would win it all, until goalie Dwayne Roloson got injured and then I thought they had little chance to win. The Oilers almost did it without him, but Carolina was just too much Monday night. Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward won the Conn Smythe Trophy, which goes to the Playoff MVP. So congratulations to the Carolina Hurricanes and to their fans and to the Hartford Whalers fans. As a Bruins fan, I can only dream and imagine when the black and gold will hoist the cup again. Hopefully in my lifetime.
