Bryzgalov issues quote of the day
Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was asked on Friday about Detroit's longstanding tradition of fans hurling octopi onto the ice to help bring good luck to the Red Wings. Does it bother him at all?

"No," he said. "They're not throwing the whole octopus on me … otherwise, I would stink."
Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
