Cam Ward for President

Historically Hurricanes aren't welcome in the state of North Carolina. They kill people and damage property left and right. However right now the damage from NC Hurricanes is being shifted to Edmonton, Canada.

Coming from a 3-1 deficit after two periods in the first game of the Stanley Cup playoff, the Hurricanes went on to win the game 5-4 in an exhilirating, nay shocking, 3rd period. Cam Ward, the 22 year old rookie Goalie for the 'Canes, was instrumental in the win. He saved goal after goal, often by the last gasp defence of using his catching glove, allowing NC to come from behind and win the game. 34 saves in the game!

The offence was led by Ray Whitney and Rod Brind'Amour, who scored two goals each, for the 'Canes but that came late in the game. The Oilers dominated the game through the first two periods. Rod Brind'Amour, who plays Center for the 'Canes, was quite honest in an interview between the 2nd and 3rd periods and admitted they had little chance to win unless they dramatically changed their play. The 'Canes did that with a vengence and made this one of the more memorable games in Stanley Cup history with the twist that Rod Brind'Amour made the winning goal with 32 seconds left in the game. (especially if you live in NC)

I am always amused when the unlikely viewer watches a hockey game... A close friend who is extremely feminine and way into cultural-type things rather than sports actually became a season ticket holder two years ago. I won't explain how that happened....

Anyway, congrats to your team, Dave.
