DALLAS (AP) - Jason Arnott had
the puck on his stick, a teammate in his
thoughts and a Stanley Cup to ssitn fot
the exhausted New Jersey Devils.
Arnott ripped a shot from the left cir-
cle past Dallas goaltender Ed Belfour
8:20 into the second overtime, ending a
second consecutive tension-filled over-
time game - and the Stars' Stanley
Cup run - with a 2-1 Devils victory
Arnott one-timed Patrik Elias' no-
look pass as the Devils prevented the
Stars from forcing a Game 7 Monday in
New Jersey and won their second Cup
in six seasons.
"It's all a big blur," Arnott said. "I
remember the goal going in, but every-
thing else is a blur."
As the Cup was handed to Elias, he
had injured linemate Petr Sykora's jer-
sey draped over his shoulder. Sykora
was carried off on a stretcher with
12:08 gone following a collision with
the Stars' Derian Hatchet, but was not
believed to be seriously injured.
Elias called Sykora and told him the
team would bring the Cup to him in the
hospital. Sykora was kept overnight for
"He said that when we scored, he was
jumping out of the bed," Elias said.
Because the Devils wouldn't lose on
the road - they were 3-0 in Reunion
Arena - the Stanley Cup has a new
home. The Stars, who won the Cup on
the road ina multiple-overtime Game 6
last year in Buffalo, lost it in a Game 6
multiple overtime at home as the Devils
won the series 4-2.
No other team has had to play suc-
cessive multiple-overtime games at the
end of the finals to win the Cup.
Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur
ended his record-tying seven-game
overtirne playoff losing streak by mak-
ing 30 saves, while Belfour - one of
the heroes of the Stars' exhausting 1-0,
three-overtime victory in Game 5 -
lost despite stopping 43 of 45 shots. He
allowed only two goals in the final 208
minutes, 33 seconds of the series, yet
still wound up losing.
The New Jersey Devils swere one
happy and exhausted team after win-
ning the Cup in Dallas late Saturday
As a dejected Belfour knelt, the puck
nestled in the net, Arnott skated behind
him, pumping his fists and tearing off
his equipment so he could hug h:s
"These were two unbelievable hock-
ey games, Stars coach Ken Hitchcock
said. "Without the two goaltenders that
were out there, these games could have
been 9-8: Both teams put everything
they had into it, and both teams knew
the crises situation they were in."
A Devils loss would have given the
Stars a chance to do what New Jersey
did against Philadelphia in the Eastern
Conference finals by rallying frotn a 3-
I deficit. Only one team in NIL histo-
rv, Detroit in 1942 to Toronto. has lost
the finals after leading 3-1.
It was the third time in five years the
Ctp was won in overtime, and the
fourth time in five years the Cup has
- been won on the road.
"This is an unbelievable feeling'"
said Brodeur, who had been 1-5 in mul-
tiple-overtime games. "This time
around, I think I realized it a little more.
