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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
