"Honestly, I didn’t care to watch really," said Hunwick, who per league rules did not get a ring or his name on the Cup. "I took off for western Ontario for a canoeing trip and had no cell phone or Internet for 10 days. When I got back, it was already Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals and I saw the Bruins had won. I watched some of that series but it was hard. Like I said, I knew they could do it. But I am so happy for those guys and I called the guys I keep in touch with to wish them my best. They have a great team and they will be tough again this season."
A recap of the Colorado-Boston game in the Washington Post.
The Avalanche were certainly satisfied to have a win this season despite a low-scoring start.
"To have one goal in two games and have one win, I think we’ll take it," Hejduk said.
The three ex-NHL'ers that were verbally attacked by Don Cherry on Thursday are demanding a full apology.
The statement is expected to indicate that the players feel Cherry’s comments were vulgar and malicious and, in light of his limited attempt to qualify his comments Saturday, they are considering further action to force an apology.
The sources have not indicated what action the players might take, but from the context it appears clear that they are threatening to sue Cherry and/or the CBC if Cherry does not issue a full apology.
