Unbeatable on home ice during the 2003 Stanley Cup Finals, the New Jersey Devils captured the Stanley Cup Monday night with a 3-0 shutout victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the climatic seventh game of the series.

The Devils soared to their third Stanley Cup in the past nine years on the strength of two goals by former Mighty Duck Jeff Friesen, a single goal by rookie Mike Rupp and the strong goaltending of Martin Brodeur, who notched his third shutout of the Finals.

The Devils set an NHL record with their 12th home win of these Playoffs, posting a 12-1 record at Continental Airlines Arena.
