Phantoms pull off fan-tastic sweep

Nice article from Fox...

Quote:
After the game the fans were going nuts, and getting louder every time a new player held up the Calder Cup, the highest prize for hockey (at least this season). The loudest eruption was for Phlex, the Phantoms team mascot. As Phlex raised the trophy, the roof nearly came down.

Over an hour after the building had emptied out, nearly a third of the fans were still in the parking lot, while others were battling traffic to get out. Those still in the parking lot were just partying and having a good time. They were just as loud outside as they were inside. Barbeque grills were out and in some cases and they were lighting off fireworks. Not to be outdone, the fans trying to make it home provided a symphony of car horns.
