The clock struck midnight on the cinderella Edmonton Oilers in Carolina.

A 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers in a Game 7 thriller Monday night completed one of the most riveting finals in memory. Hockey's biggest prize now rests where stock car racing and college basketball reign supreme in the world of sport, but where hockey fans are as loud as anywhere else.

The Oilers leave with heads held high after going much farther in the playoffs than anybody expected. To get so close to going all the way and falling just short was a heartbreaker for captain Jason Smith and his teammates. 

Goaltender, Cam Ward, was named the playoff MVP.
