It definitely will be a little tone setter. If you can beat them and set a good tone, maybe in the back of their minds they'll get frustrated. But if they walk in and beat us, 5-1, pretty easily, I think they'll be pretty comfortable and confident. So for both teams it's an important game.
He was my idol growing up. From the time I was 6 or 7 years old I wanted to be like him. I was a right-handed shot like him, and I liked the way he played. I wanted to be him someday. It's fun to watch him. He's so exciting.
He's such a good goalie that you have to do something different to beat him. There was a little bit of luck, but it still felt good.
I don't care too much if I play Crosby, or anybody else. It's just another game. I want to go out there and help my team win.
I'm looking forward to (playing against Lemieux) more than all the other hype the media is raising. It's a dream come true. Once the puck drops it's all about business, but it's definitely going to be cool. It's still going to be a special day.
