WINNIPEG, CANADA - APRIL 25: Montreal Canadiens' head coach Michel Therrien speaks with Rene Bourque #17 as he gets off the ice during third period NHL action on April 25, 2013 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
We would like to thank both the Winnipeg Jets and the St. John's Ice Caps for their efforts and assistance during the last two years ... The Jets and the IceCaps provided the Colorado Eagles with some very dynamic young players whose contributions both on the ice and in the community were fantastic. We appreciate our relationship with the Jets and the IceCaps and our dealings with them were nothing but first-class.
We wanted to put ourselves in a position where [Tuesday] is going to be a meaningful game and we've done that ... So here it is.
It’s unfortunate that a lot of people don’t get the opportunity to come to the games, but it’s nice to have an event like this for a lot of loyal fans that don’t get the opportunity that a lot of people do ... It puts a little more pressure in practice, but it’s always fun to have fans out. Hopefully they enjoyed it.More quotes »
