-This marks just the second season since NHL clubs exclusively began competing for the Stanley Cup in 1927 that the Stanley Cup Finalists did not meet during the regular season. The abbreviated 1994-95 season, during which the clubs played a 48-game schedule of exclusively intra-conference contests, featured a New Jersey Devils-Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup Final. -Hurricanes RW Mark Recchi is making his first Final appearance in 15 years. In 1991, he captured the Stanley Cup as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Oilers RW Radek Dvorak is making his first Stanley Cup Final appearance in a decade. In his rookie season of 1995-96, Dvorak went to the Final as a member of the Florida Panthers. -Hurricanes D Mike Commodore and LW Cory Stillman are appearing in the Stanley Cup Final for the second consecutive season. They were on opposite sides in 2004, Stillman for the Tampa Bay Lightning and Commodore for the Calgary Flames.more
