MONTREAL - APRIL 22: Marc Savard #91 and Steve Montador #23 of the Boston Bruins wait in the players' tunnel for warmups prior to Game Four of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Round of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre on April 22, 2009 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.
