Conn Smythe Award Winner Responds

Q. Does this seem surreal to you to be the rookie and Stanley Cup champion? Your emotions right now? CAM WARD: It's unbelievable. Your childhood dream of winning the Stanley Cup has finally come true and all that work you put forth through minor hockey and junior, it's all paid off from today. Q. Talk about the last five minutes of the game. They put a lot of pressure on you obviously. What was going through your mind, talk about the breakaway this that they had right towards the end? CAM WARD: You got to give Edmonton credit. They didn't give up, and they threw everything at us. When you look at the first goal, it was as a bad rebound on my part. A goal that I wanted to take back. You saw the same situation with the second time around, and I was fortunate to make the save. Q. You know the tradition involved of being able to keep the Cup for a day, all that sort of thing. Your wedding day is what day? And are you putting in bids for it? CAM WARD: July 22. Haven't put much thought into it. But probably would make a nice center piece. read more in the comments...
