The Anaheim Ducks had come close in 2003 & 2006. They took the Devils to a game 7 in the 2003 finals. They were upset by the Oilers in the 2006 Conference finals. They made another killer run in 2007 and captured the cup this time over Ottawa. The Ducks were established in 1993 and won a cup before the hated rival Los Angeles Kings who had been around since 1967 with no cup.
