Some people skate to the puck. I skate to where the puck is going to be.


You miss 100% of the shots you never take.


That's just the way it works when you play against the same guys game after game. Hockey players remember everything. It's in the nature of the game that someone is going to get a stick up on you, or give you a little cross-check in the back as you look for position in the slot, or someone is going to chirp at you. Or maybe someone just beats you fair and square and you don't like it. No one likes to be beaten. You don't retaliate in the moment. You just remember the guy's number, and sort it out later, usually when the referee isn't nearby.
