Remembering the Moment

Reflecting on the 2007 Stanley Cup win for the Ducks, Helene Elliotte at the LA Times ducks into a time capsule to remember Anaheim’s moment in the sun:

“That’s still to this day one of the most amazing feelings and tough to pinpoint exactly how you feel at that moment,” [Dustin Penner] said. “The whole season was a grind. You went through ups and downs the whole year and a lot of things had to line up for us to get to that point, but it was such a great feeling about relief and success and accomplishment and the pride everybody had for each other in that room.”

The feeling was similar for Perry.

“That was a special moment for all three of us. All the emotions running through your body, I don’t even know if you really knew what was going on. It happened so fast,” he said. “You dream your whole life that one day you’ll get to hold it up in the air, and we had that chance and we took it all in.”
