NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21: Brad Marchand #63 of the Boston Bruins celebrates with teammates Shawn Thornton #22 and Tuukka Rask #40 after defeating the New York Rangers in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Madison Square Garden on May 21, 2013 in New York City. The Boston Bruins defeated the New York Rangers 2-1.

So I try to focus on the other stuff.More quotes »
