Memorial Cup Retrospective
With the 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup now underway, we're going to take the opportunity to look back on some memorable moments from our appearances in the 2006 and 2007 tournaments. Join us here from May 17 - 28 as we look back on key moments, interesting facts, and "what happened on this day".
In 2007, the tournament began with a game between the host Giants and the OHL Champion Plymouth Whalers, who featured future NHL'ers like James Neal (PIT), Tom Sestito (PHI) and Michal Neuvirth (WAS). The game was a see-saw battle that ended when the Giants' Kenndal McArdle (WPG) fired home a shot at 5:06 of overtime to send the 13,428 fans in attendance home happy. Vancouver's Milan Lucic (BOS) scored two goals and was the game's 1st star, while Neal also netted a pair and took home 2nd star honours.
