him being on the losing team, but, apparently, that wasn't the case at all.
It was 2-0 Devils by the end of the second, I'm pretty sure they would have been operating under the assumption that the Ducks would lose.
And if it really made a difference, I'm sure they would have had nominees from both teams depending on the outcome-- but obviously they made the decision that Giguere deserved it even if the Ducks lost.
