Road Trip to Raleigh
Eating and Meeting, all Satisfying
I just finished my second bbq pulled pork sandwich of the day, and once again I am utterly satisfied.  The locker rooms were open to those with proper credentials for a period of time--so I made a beeline for the Team Staal locker room. Ovie was sitting back with his arms crossed in his cubby, while Henrik Lundqvist prepared his sticks for the weekend's festivities.

Next, I ran into a brigade of team mascots, complete with full pads, sticks and skates. Mr. Bolt of the Lightning was very friendly and even took a picture with me. (Maybe he just wanted some publicity in the blog!)
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
