An awesome NHL team who just won THE STANLEY CUP.
Us Raleigh folks partied all night, making bonfires from Oilers Jerseys, after the Carolina Hurricanes' game seven victory.

NHL team that experienced an incredible amount of luck during its '06 playoff run. They would have never made it passed the Conference Finals if the sabres wouldn't have lost 4 of their top 6 defensemen and one of their best forwards to injury... And they still took it to 7 games. Edmonton had a full head of steam and lost their starting goaltender for the series having to rely on backups... and they took it to 7 games. The hurricanes are a joke of a team, their fan base sucks, they could barely sell out games to the conference finals (pathetic). Caniac is the worst nickname for a nonexistant fan base I have ever heard, those hicks don't deserve lord stanley's cup.
The Carolina Hurricanes may be the Champs but they were deff not the best
