Doug Risebrough doesn’t recall Scotty Bowman being a big pep-talk guy.
“But before the last game of that year, in Washington, I think it was,” reminisced the Minnesota Wild general manager, “Scotty walked into the room, cleared his throat and gave a little speech. That in itself was odd. And I remember he said something like, ‘Boys, do it tonight and we’ll become the first team in NHL history to win 60 games!’
“And I’m sitting there, getting my stuff on, totally oblivious to what we’d been doing, and thinking, ‘What? Are we that good?!’”
