: It was tough to lose at home the other day. But we came in here and said: You know what, weíre gonna play our best and see what happens. We gotta give our guys a lot of credit to come back here and play the kind of hockey game they played. Itís unbelievable, a huge victory. Everybodyís excited. prohockey.de
: You were part of many championship teams as a player and as a coach. Was this just another championship run for you or a different experience?Butch Goring
: Some of the championships I was involved in, we had the best team and were expected to win. But the Krefeld Pinguine werenít expected to win. We almost didnít get into the playoffs and each and every round, everybody kept saying: As long as you make a good showing, everybody would be happy. We kept making a better showing. To win as an underdog certainly has a special meaning for me.prohockey.de
