The Minnesota Wild won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history last night by defeating the Carolina Hurricanes in an exciting game 7 by a score of 6 to 4. This sparked outrage towards the Columbus Blue Jackets organization, the Wild's expansion cousins, who have yet to win a single playoff series and were not able to win their first playoff game until this post season.

GM Mackenzie didn't have much to say on the subject except that fans should be pleased with how the team is shaping up for next season.

Columbus defenseman Jack Johnson became the second consecutive Columbus defenseman to win the award for perseverance and dedication to the sport of hockey. Defensive partner James Wisniewski won the award last season.

Sidney Crosby, Daniel Sedin, and Pekka Rinne all took home multiple awards at this year's event. Crosby took home the Art Ross Trophy, for accumulating the most points, the Frank J. Selke Trophy, for the league's top defensive forward, and shared the Maurice Richard Trophy, the award for the most prolific goal scorer of the year, with Phil Kessel. Daniel Sedin took home the Hart Memorial and Lady Byng Memorial Trophies as the league's most valuable player as voted on by the media and the league's most sportsmanlike player. Pekka Rinne was awarded the other MVP trophy, the Ted Lindsay Award, which is given to the league's most valuable player as voted by the NHLPA. Rinne also shared the William M. Jennings trophy with his goaltending partner Chris Mason.
