There’s not a whole lot that can describe how Jeff Carter and Mike Richards were feeling after hoisting the Stanley Cup after Monday’s Game 6 win.

But, if anything, for Carter, scoring twice en route to the celebration, and, ultimately, the go-ahead goal, was icing on the cake in a roller coaster year.

After being sent off to obscurity within the depths of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Carter was brought on to Los Angeles to bolster some offensive depth.

And the mentality of the Flyers not being able to win with Carter (and/or Richards) should very well be swept away. Or, at least, to say, teams can’t win with them as the core. But Los Angeles has proved to be the ideal location for the two. They became nearly as resourceful as the top line, but regarded as supporting members.

Carter’s first goal of the night, when came on the power play, can be seen here in the recap section.
