A Hockey Dad’s Relief

From Robin Collum in the Edmonton Journal, the words of John Osgood:

“I’m a hockey dad, so I know it’s a 60-minute game, and I knew that in Detroit in Game 5 when they scored in the last minute to extend the series.

“So in the last minute in Pittsburgh when it was 3-2 and everybody was up cheering, I was sitting. I was watching the screen, and it was 5.2 seconds left, and the puck was at centre ice, so I risked standing up and starting to celebrate,” he said.  “Then, all of a sudden, it’s a two-one-one down low, Crosby’s got the backhand, Hossa’s got the puck and throws it through the crease.

“But it worked out and it was so emotional, but a sense of relief, too, that it was over. I think I was more nervous than Chris was.”
