MONTREAL, CANADA - MAY 9: Fans of the Montreal Canadiens came early to catch a bit of sun before Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Ottawa Senators at the Bell Centre on May 9, 2013 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

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.
