The Carolina Hurricanes~~~~~~~

Fun facts:

3 wins by Carolina were by the score of 2-1 in overtime.

Arturs Irbe posted the first playoff shutout of his career during this series but lost 2 shutouts in the last minute.

The BBC line scored 0 goals during this series.

Arturs Irbe has the lowest GAA average and highest save percentage of all remaining goaltenders.

The Stanley Cup is 4 wins away from spending the summer in North Carolina.

Good luck.

Heartbreaking.

But I tip my hat to Carolina-Irbe, Francis, and Coach Maurice as well. From Toronto, congratulations and I hope you win the Cup-mainly because I'm sick of hearing about whoever winning the East will get slaughtered by whoever wins the West. Plus, Carolina seems like a likable bunch. You saw some real respect between the two teams in the handshake.

As for the Leafs-great run, inspiring, gritty, what can you say. They shouldn't have made it past Ottawa, but did so much more.

Now I can get on with summer...oh crap, the World Cup is about to begin.

Yeah, but he's played only half the games that the others have played, I believe. That's not to say, however, that his stats aren't amazing. I was going to make a comment about scoring prowess faced when I remembered that Toronto led the East in scoring this year. Nevermind

At the same time, I do wonder if Carolina's not playing better than either of the teams in the West right now. They're definitely playing better team defense, if not team hockey. It will definitely be interesting to see what the final brings.

Oh, and, yeah, what a game tonight. This whole playoff has easily been better than any I can remember since the early nineties.

GO CANES!!!!! WOOOOOO!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!! WOOOOOOO!!!

Anyway, wow, it seemed like Toronto was so much more fired up in the OT than Carolina, and I was sure we were going to end up in game 7, but the Canes pulled it out. Now it's time to rest, and get ready, because both Detroit and Colorado are playing great hockey, and either one is going to be tough to beat. Hey and Toronto rocked tonight with all the hugs and the handshakes afterwards. That was cool.

ON TO THE FINALS!!!! GOOOOOOOOOOOO CANES!!!!!!!!!!

Could we be looking at a WHA final?

Quebec(Colorado) vs. Hartford(Carolina)

That would be interesting. I think Carolina would match better against Detroit, though.

As I see it, Carolina won the series because they made less mistakes. Both goals tonight were off boneheaded plays by Kaberle (I think) and Mogilney.

I'm STILL upset that neither Hoglund nor Reichel ever got their act together.

And if the Leafs want to be contenders next year they have to:

a) Resign Curtis Joseph. It'll cost a ton, but he's proved he's worth it.
b) Shore up the defense somehow. If I see Aki Berg on defense for the Leafs next season, I'm going to weep.

And my beloved Leafs pack it in for another year. Sigh. They gave a great effort, but the breaks just didn't go their way. THREE losses in overtime...damn.

This just in: whoever wins the West will slaughter the Hurricanes. Western conference champ wins the Cup final in five games tops.

If it is the Whalers vs the Nordiques - will they be playing for the AVCO World Trophy ?????

Sure, I'm only 20 years old and I haven't been suffering as long as most Whalers fans...

But holy hell it feels good! I remember the team going 6 or 7 years without making the playoffs once. I remember the heartbreaking 7 game series against Montreal back in 1991. I remember Sylvain Turgeon tearing it up when I was REAL young. I remember hearing that one of my favorite players in Steve Chiasson had died in a drunk driving accident after bowing out of the playoffs in 1999. I remember Ron Francis, Kevin Dineen, Andrew Cassels, Pat Verbeek, Ray Ferraro, Geoff Sanderson, and the rest of the Whalers crew who never got their just due because of the team they played on.

After years of being a suffering fan of this club, they made it to the Stanley Cup Finals. I doesn't matter who they're playing - this is unbelievable.

This is far better than seeing the Braves win the World Series - because at least that was expected. This playoff year has been a dream!

Well, I hope that Carolina & Colorado have a fun time, because next year will BELONG TO THE FLAMES! Mark my words, with the powerhouse that is called Iginla...and Turek...and some nameless, faceless rookies...we will dominate! HEED MY WARNING!

All kidding aside, this will be the first Stanley Cup Final with two teams that've moved...'cept Colorado and Jersey...so...let's say it's the first Final with two teams that've moved WITHIN THE LAST DECADE. Yeah... [runs away]

I really hope who ever wins the West destroys the Canes. It'd be cute if it were Colorado (The match-up WHA fans have waited 20+ years to see!) I am still not over the fact that the Canes are in the Finals. "That they beat New Jersey, Montreal, AND Toronto and they have a shot at Hockey's Holy Grail. It's like 1996 all over again when FLORIDA made it to the Finals. I guess it's an appropriate final series for a strange strange season.

Florida was more of a WTF? team than the Canes.
The Hurricanes have the old Whalers background, have some great veterans, some of them bound for the hallf of fame and more..

Never got a chance to congratulate the Hurricanes on their victory - as depressing as it was. I have no hard feelings - the Leafs gave it their all, had gone through two BRUTAL game 7 series to get there, and just didn't have the OT magic that Carolina has right now.

That Carolina defence is stifling. They are SO under-rated. And now it looks like Detroit is finding out what the Leafs found out in Round 3. Carolina is not gonna roll over at ALL. If Detroit wants their Cup, they'll sure as hell have to earn it against these boys.

I'm happy for the Carolina fans down there - while there aren't that many of them, they are GREAT fans who have gotten behind their team in a terrific way. This will be great for hockey in Carolina for sure.....I'm still bitter though. *grumble grumble grumble*
Should be an interesting (and long) Cup final.
