There's just no other word for it. To have come so far, against such massive odds...
Congratulations to the Lightning. They earned their victory tonight. Dave Andreychuck (a good Hamilton boy!); after waiting 22 years, it looks good on ya.
To the Flames: well done. For a team that wasn't even supposed to survive their first round, you went from underdogs to nearly world-beaters. Even though Tampa seemed to have beaten you at your own game, you came out blazing in the final 10 minutes, and did everything but stand on your heads trying to pot that equaliser.
You made your city and the whole damn country proud. We love ya for what you accomplished, and for bringing the country together behind you.
Well done guys.
