Mike Richter on Herb Brooks’ Passion for Hockey During the Olympics

From Mike Morreale at NHL.com:

“He lived and breathed hockey and was just so competitive,” Richter said. “We were playing against the Russians and I remember (Chris) Chelios coming over to me and saying, ‘Wow, he’s really fired up.’ It was a motivating thing to see how much he wanted to win after all he’d been through over the years and his desire to field the best team he could, so the guy knows so much and you always felt like you were in good hands. If there’s anyone we felt deserved a gold medal for all the right reasons, my god, it would have been sweet to win it for Herb.”
