As brothers, you have your fights, you pick on each other. This (2006) group is more like brother-sister - real tight, but not over the edge. We were over the edge in '90. We got in a lot of fights - in the locker room between periods, at practice. But there was never any doubt how much we cared about each other.
Win or lose, you didn't know, but there was no doubt at all that we were going to give an effort. The guys were going to block shots for each other. They were going to take hits for each other. You could sense that right from the morning breakfast all the way through. I think that's the feeling the guys have and we've tried as a staff to continue that this week.
