Kukla's Korner Hockey

Entire Hockey World Conquered

from the News and Observer,
As his teammates danced wildly at the other end of the ice, Rod Brind'Amour skated by himself, head bowed and hands on his knees, overwhelmed with emotion. After years of struggle for the captain and the Carolina Hurricanes, he was only minutes away from lifting the Stanley Cup above his head. You could say it took the Hurricanes 10 months and 107 games to win the Stanley Cup, but it really took nine years, countless losses, the trials and tribulations of a slapdash move, two years in Greensboro and a lost season to realize this impossible dream. A franchise once seen as hopeless has now conquered the entire hockey world.
