"I remember going on there with double-runners on and falling all the time. It looked so easy and I actually began crying to get off the ice. My dad would take my brother and me by the hands and kind of windmill us around with the blades on so that we got that feeling of going really fast. That's when I really had my mind set on learning how to skate." -- Pat LaFontaine
"We want to get more kids on the ice to play, teach them how to play better and get them to love the game and play it longer. Hockey in America is growing and getting better." -- Dave Ogrean
It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
