NHL Network is going to raise the Cup all summer long.

Every day at noon, we'll roll out another Cup clincher to stave off your hockey hunger. Watch your heroes of yesterday win it all ... again.

Fans can tune in at 12 p.m. ET every weekday for a different game -- and different champion. A complete program schedule can be found on NHLNetwork.com (U.S.).


The early 2000s saw its fair share of Stanley Cup Final series go the distance as the 2003 Final between the New Jersey Devils and Mighty Ducks of Anaheim was the second Final since 2001 to need seven games to decide it. This was New Jersey's third Cup Final appearance in the last four seasons, while Anaheim was there for the first time since becoming an NHL franchise back in 1993. The series would pit the stellar playoff goaltending of the Mighty Ducks' Jean-Sebastian Giguere against Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, who would win that season's Vezina Trophy as the NHL's best goaltender. Additionally, Scott Niedermayer of New Jersey and brother Rob Niedermayer of Anaheim would face each other for the first time in a Stanley Cup Final.

The Devils would defeat the Mighty Ducks 3-0 in Game 7 with a goal from Mike Rupp and a pair from Jeff Friesen. The latest championship for the Devils marked their third Cup in less than a decade after winning their first NHL championship in 1995 and another in 2000. The 2003 Stanley Cup Final would also be the end of an era dating back to 1995 where eight of nine Stanley Cups were won by either the Devils, Colorado Avalanche or Detroit Red Wings. Another unique fact from the 2003 Cup Final was that Anaheim goalie Jean-Sebastian Giguere captured the Conn Smythe trophy as the playoff MVP, despite being on the losing team. This was the first time that happened since Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ron Hextall captured the trophy in a losing effort to the Edmonton Oilers in 1987.
