It's a pretty neat article Click Here (wwe.com) to read it... Some quotes from it
“It’s just a national pride thing,” Trish Stratus said. “Hockey is Canada’s game. To bring the Cup home to Canada is where we feel it rightfully belongs.”
Stratus, born and bred in Toronto and a fan of the city’s Maple Leafs, was rooting for the Leafs. Like many (or most) Canadians, she jumped on the Flames’ bandwagon once her team was eliminated from the playoffs. “But as a Canadian I’m allowed to,” she said.
Stratus isn’t the only one who jumped on the bandwagon. According to Storm, even though the celebration was especially pronounced in Calgary – where you could walk down any street on game day and hear the play call, because the TV was literally on in every house -- fans throughout the country were rooting for the Flames so vehemently that they might as well have been called the “Canadian Flames.”
Good article which they talked to Lance Storm, Trish and Christian about the Calgary Flames run from small market team to surprise finalist... I do wonder as Trish and most Toronto natives were supportive of the sole Canadian team left, would it be the same if the shoe is on the other foot, hmmm.

I will be in the minority on this but I like the Oilers third jersey. I got to see the jersey live when they played in Philly and almost wanted to buy one. Much better than the Flyers third jersey, which turned into the road jersey.
