Open Thread: Edmonton at Carolina, Game 7 SCF, June 19, 2006

For the 18,978 fans who were on their feet for the entire game, it's a night they'll never forget. For those who watched on TV, it was one sweet night as well. Tonight, at 8pm on the NHL Network, the "Raise the Cup" summer series arrives at Raleigh's RBC Center, June 2006.

Canes Country had not yet opened its doors when Rod Brind`Amour grabbed the Stanley Cup from Gary Bettman after the Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Edmonton Oilers in Game 7, by a final score of 3-1. None of the Canes goalscorers (Aaron Ward, Frank Kaberle, Justin Williams) remain on the team, and only a few who played there will be in Carolina this season: Eric Staal, Erik Cole, Cam Ward, and Chad LaRose (with a mention of Anton Babchuk, who was a healthy scratch).

It seemed the blog needed this thread in our archives and what better way to remember than here with others who were also there when Carolina hockey earned its place in the history of the Stanley Cup.
