2011 Stanley Cup Finals: Post-Game 1 Reaction from Alain Vigneault of Vancouver
VANCOUVER - After the dramatic end to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Vancouver Canucks Head Coach Alain Vigneault had a few good quotes:
On the injury to Dan Hamhuis:
"He's day-to-day." When asked a second time, "He's fine."
Expect Hamhuis to play in Game 2 then, as the Canucks and Bruins have two off days.
On the great play of the third line consisting of Jannik Hansen, Maxim Lapierre and Raffi Torres:
"Yeah, they were strong. They played the way we want to play: fast, north/south, took pucks to the net. They had some grade A scoring chances.
I really liked both Max and especially Jannik's speed tonight. Obviously there was a weapon. Raffi had a couple of nice hits tonight, obviously clutch at the right time."
On the nasty edge to the penalty filled game:
"Well, with what's at stake, I expect both teams to want it real bad. That's what we saw tonight."
