from Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly,
Vinny Lecavalier was here once before, to watch his younger brother play.
That was certainly fun for Lecavalier and his family, but to actually take the ice at the Lake Placid Olympic Center was a far different experience -- much better than sitting in the crowd cheering on Clarkson University.
“It means a lot,” Lecavalier said. “I’m Canadian, but the hockey history obviously is a lot, coming to this arena. It’s great, it’s a beautiful town and we’re happy to bond as a team.”
It’s impossible to enter this building, and especially the actual rink on which the 1980 U.S. team surprised the world and won Olympic gold, without being hyper aware of a sense of what was accomplished here.
from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
He is from Murray Harbour, PEI, so Brad Richards knows something about natural beauty – the wonders of Cavendish Beach, the power of the Atlantic Ocean.
This, though, is different.
