Stanley in the News
I'd wanted to do a quick runthrough of all the newspaper's coverage of the Carolina Hurricanes' Stanley Cup win yesterday, but just wasn't able to find the time. Here's my best attempt — a day after the fact.

The Globe and Mail
Starting close to home, of course
A beautifully designed paper, I might add
The other end of the home-team spectrum
A smart choice to go with a jubilation shot
Canada's largest daily
Another North Carolina entry, also an Observer
The smallest paper I've listed, they've got a neat little 'local connection' feature on Rod Brind'Amour's real hometown, Campbell River, B.C. (he's often listed as being from Ottawa, where he was born)
Some small skybox treatment here
I looked far and wide for some international, front-page play for the Cup (Sweden, Finland, Russia) but drew a blank. If you've seen one, pass it along. (Pravda celebrates Frankie Kaberle's contributions: Stanley cup zdivhl aj Cech Kaberle!)
Chances the Cup gets skybox play had the Lightning not won in 2004? Zero. Still, this is good to see.
