Anaheim has won it all...

The Canes are no longer the reigning Stanley Cup Champions.

The Anaheim Ducks have won Lord Stanley's Cup, after a 5 game series with Ottawa.

The Ducks won 6-2. The Senators didn't play very well (or at least, they didn't play well consistently), but the Ray Emery own-goal definitely didn't help their cause.

And, I think I know why the Senators were doomed to lose. Yeah... Daniel Alfredsson touched the Prince of Wales trophy. And you Caniacs who saw the Canes do the exact same thing in 2001-02 know exactly what I'm talking about. I remember seeing the picture of him holding the trophy! on and thinking "Wow... that's not a good sign."

For those who don't know, it's a superstition that you don't touch the conference trophy until you won the Stanley Cup. Otherwise, you're not going to win the Cup.

*sigh* Well, there's always next season!
