RUSLAN FEDOTENKO: Acquired in a much-scrutinized trade two years ago, Fedotenko delivered both of Tampa Bay's goals in Game 7, his 11th and 12th of the playoffs. His reward for standing firm in front of the net: the Stanley Cup.

NIKOLAI KHABIBULIN: The foundation around which the new Lightning was built, he faced only 17 shots, but the Bulin Wall's third-period performance protecting a one-goal lead was a masterpiece.

BRAD RICHARDS: He set an NHL postseason record with eight winning goals, but made his mark on Game 7 as the point man of the power play. His wrist shot from the point that was the primary assist on the Lightning's first goal.
