Team Comes First

From Helene St. James at the Free Press,

“I think what’s passed down from a lot of Hall of Famers that have played here, what is passed on to Nick Lidstrom and Drapes, and it will be passed on to the next guys, that is what made the difference for us in Game 6,” Osgood said. “I think that’s underestimated. Those guys told us how to handle this, how to handle it after we lost in overtime in Game 5, and now we can tell the Darren Helms and the Nik Kronwalls.

“I truly think we win because we’re more of a team, from the guys who retired to the guys who are still playing, than anywhere else. If Pavel Datsyuk is leading the league in scoring, Henrik Zetterberg is not mad about it. Steve Yzerman taught us all how to be team players and play for the other guy.”
