from Vicki Hall of the Calgary Herald,
“Was I fired up? Yeah I was fired up,” the captain said. “I still think I’m fired up, and I think all of our guys are fired up as far as wanting to win this series.”
But the captain said he is fuelled by the chance to take a 3-2 lead in the series—not a chance to silence incessant trash talk.
“In our dressing room, we do whatever it takes within as close to the rules as we can to win,” he said.
“That’s what it’s about. You get out there, and you know that every team in the playoffs wants the same thing. We’re definitely very hungry for it.”
As for his flash of rage in Game 3?
“It’s part of competing,” he said. “Sometimes, sure, there are moments when you don’t act with the best control.
“But the identify of our team is to be very aggressive, to a man, each guy, to compete and find that balance with your emotions.”
