Ducks Win Their First Cup

Congratulations are in order for the Anaheim Ducks. They have successfully won the most difficult championship in all of sports: the Stanley Cup. Last night, they have defeated the Ottawa Senators by a score of 6-2 (link goes to the recap at The game was the clincher for Anaheim and they certainly showed that they were the superior team throughout the series. This is their first Stanley Cup and the first Stanley Cup to be won by a team on the West Coast of North America (sorry L.A. and Vancouver).

Former Devils legend and future Hall of Famer Scott Neidermayer won the Conn Smythe trophy. Truly he was the MVP of the playoffs as he led the Ducks to glory. While he did not put up big numbers (3 G, 8 A in 21 games), the two-way defenseman was a rock in his own end while being a threat on offense. This victory gives Neidermayer his fourth Stanley Cup win, something very few people have ever accomplished in hockey.

Again, congratulations to the Anaheim Ducks for their most successful season.
