The Puck Stops Here

"Great moments are born from great opportunity.
And that's what you have here tonight, boys.
That's what you've earned here, tonight.
One game
If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine.
But not this game. Not tonight.
Tonight, we skate with 'em
Tonight, we stay with 'em, and we shut them down because we can!
Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world.
You were born to be hockey players -- every one of ya.
And you were meant to be here tonight.
This is your time.
Their time -- is done. It's over.
I'm sick and tired of hearin' about what a great hockey team the Canucks have.
Screw 'em!
This is your time!!
Now go out there and take it!"
The late, great Herb Brooks to his USA hockey team before beating the Soviets.

Bring home Lord Stanley tonite.

That sounds like coach Brooks. The last time I heard that was Kurt Russell. I hope they do win it but damn...they can't seem to get it done in Vancouver.

As I sit here it is 3-0 Bruins.

Do you believe in miracles?!?!?

A Boston based (well nearly) friend of mine pointed out that in the last few years Boston has won via the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and now Bruins just about everything there is in every sport that matters in the USA. Does Boston have an MLS team - might be worth putting a bet on them given this run...
