Hurricanes Win Stanley Cup

The Carolina Hurricanes win their first ever Stanley Cup with a 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers in game 7 of the series. After allowing the Oilers some hope watching them even up the series after leading 3 games to 1, the Hurricanes played with resolve on Monday night and left no doubt that they were going to emerge victorious.

Rookie goalie Cam Ward stopped just about evey shot the Oilers had to offer giving up just one goal early in the 3rd period facing 23 shots. He also was the reciepient of the Conn Smythe Trophy for the playoff MVP. The real story for game 7 for Carolina outside of the rookies play was the fantastic defensive play by Carolina in shutting down the Oilers attack and in turring offensive themselves gettign the first two goals of the game. Aaron Ward and Frantisek Kaberle lit the lamp in the first and second period respectively.
