MANCHESTER - The champions had a lot of merchandise to sign Monday. Making their mark on jerseys, pucks, sticks and the city after winning the team's first Calder Cup with a 4-1 series win against Utica.
"I still can't believe it. Everything happened so quick," said Monarchs goalie JF Berube. "I think when I'm going to have time to be home and sit back and just look what just happened I think that's when it's really going to sink in."
"It was awesome. When you get to play with guys like Ryan O'Neill and Sean Bachmann it makes it a lot easier," Jordan Weal said.
Scoring first and home ice advantage were key in the Monarchs winning their first ever Calder Cup. They won the first two games of the series at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester and Utica was never able to catch up.
"When you have a little cushion like two goals it's a little easier to play," Berube said.
And when you bring home the victory, it makes carrying the hardware that much sweeter.
So how heavy is the Calder Cup?
"It's not too bad. It gets you at first but you know what once you get it up above your head it's real light," Weal said.
