Shanahan Talks About Fischer Incident

Brendan was on Mitch Albom's radio show and said Fischer is embarrassed by all of the attention and is also a bit concerned about his privacy, and a little foggy of what really happened. Mitch asked Shanahan if the team or players actually prepare for a situation like last night. Brendan said the players know the team Doctor is right behind the bench at all times, the players were more concerned about clearing the bench area and there really is no preparation on the part of the team for something like last night. While the players were banging on the door to the Zamboni entrance where the ambulance was located to get their attention, the EMS crew was already in action by reaching the bench area through the aisles at ice level or underneath the stands. Shanahan said the TV coverage did not catch all of the action going on, said Jiri was fighting hard for his life while being treated and he has never seen anything like that. Players in the dressing room were sitting in the lockerroom wondering what was going on as much as the fans were. Shanny mentioned there was a bit of pressure to continue the game, but he is very proud of the action of his teammates and the Nashville players who decided not to play.
