"Maybe I'll re-enact the famous fall. I'll go on the ice and slip and fall on my butt and throw a kiss. That was a crazy moment." -- Phil Esposito
"I had a chance that if I went, my grandsons could join my wife and me in Russia," Esposito told NHL.com. "We'd get to spend four or five days with them and I thought, 'Wow, this is a great opportunity.' So I decided that I would go and I talked to (the people planning the reunion)."
Esposito -- currently a radio analyst and vice president of corporate relations for the Tampa Bay Lightning -- and his wife, Bridget, will leave for Moscow just five days after agreeing to go.
