The Passion Is Back

from the Globe and Mail,
Legendary Hall of Famer Yvan Cournoyer admitted over the weekend that his passion for hockey had dwindled not too long ago. Even though he could watch games in the wonderful Bell Centre atmosphere, Cournoyer no longer had the enthusiasm to attend National Hockey League games in 2003-04. "I only go to about half the games now, but I think I will start going to more," said Cournoyer, who along with Dickie Moore had their number 12s retired by the Canadiens in a pregame ceremony before the Leafs' 5-4 overtime victory. "Hockey is a wonderful game, but it hurt to watch the old game. Once a team got a lead two years ago, the game was over. But I think the game is exciting again. Teams can come back and win games."
