Sports Bog: How the Caps Celebrated
After Brooks Laich had addressed about 732 media members tonight, and after I made him repeat himself yet again in the hallway, everyone turned off their recording devices and went to find someone else. Laich just stood there, smiling.
"What a game, though, eh?" he finally said as he walked away. "What a game."
This was Game 6. Game 6 isn't usually about sheer goofy-grin-spewing jubilation. Game 6 is about "we've got one more game to go, and we're not celebrating yet." Game 6 is about "we know how serious is the task ahead." Game 6 is about cliches. Except here's how the Caps described the winning moment.
"I mean, that was the biggest goal that I scored in my career so I didn't know what to do," David Steckel said. "I just started jumping around."
"I couldn't get over the boards quick enough," Mike Green said.
"Just an eight-inch vertical leap," Coach Bruce Boudreau said, describing his own reaction. "It's getting higher. Each game that's more important, I leap a little bit higher."
