A Masterpiece of a Stanley Cup Final

Bergeron playing with a punctured lung, Hossa's wonky back, or Campbell finishing his shift on a broken leg -- none of it was anything special to watch for me as a former hockey player. That is just what hockey players do because we love the game and more importantly we love to compete.
