Tampa Bay Lightning: Nikolai Khabibulin joined the ranks of Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur and Ed Belfour on Monday night by helping the Tampa Bay Lightning win the Stanley Cup in a 2-1 Game 7 victory over Calgary. Any more questions about whether The 'Bulin Wall is a franchise goaltender?

Ruslan Fedotenko made his boss look pretty wise Monday night by scoring the Lightning's two goals. No matter how great Philadelphia defenseman Joni Pitkanen becomes, Tampa Bay GM Jay Feaster shouldn't be second-guessed again for his trade of the fourth overall pick in the 2002 entry draft.

Calgary Flames: Calgary forward Martin Gelinas might have scored the winning goal in Game 6, but was denied because of inconclusive replays. Given a second chance in Game 7, "The Eliminator" couldn't pull off his fourth trick of the playoffs.
