What a great effort by the Anaheim Ducks...fully deserving of the Stanley Cup, no questions asked. They were simply superb. 6-2 was the final in last night's game five to win the Cup on home-ice.
What more can you say about Stewart Valley's Travis Moen? Two more goals last night - he was credited with the first one after dumping the puck in and letting Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips do the rest. Yikes, it must be tough to be Chris Phillips today.
Scott Niedermeyer was awarded the Conn Smythe as playoff MVP. I can live with that. j.S. Giguere was the favorite for the award with Travis Moen having an outside shot - probably 4th or 5th on the list. I guess CBC colorman Greg Millen said on-air that Moen was his pick for the award.
Great playoffs for him, 7 goals (3 game-winners), 5 assists. All while playing the shutdown role.
His mother, brother and sister were on hand last night in Anaheim for the series clinching game. I'm going to see if I can get my hands on some pics in the coming days.
I thought Travis did a great job in his post-game interview on CBC too...he kept it "G" rated, unlike Ryan Getzlaf...haha.
Can't wait for the cup to come to Swifty...I'll be sure to post lots of pictures.
Kelowna Rockets play-by-play broadcaster Regan Bartel has pretty good coverage of the Brayden Schenn scenario. The 1st round bantam pick of Brandon says he's not reporting to the Wheat Kings. For the complete story check out Regan's blog on the link located on the right hand side of this page.
