Keeli already included some of this in the postgame quotes, but I wanted to write a little more about it, too. Mike Modano and Jeremy Roenick had a little talk and hug in the handshake line on Sunday night/Monday morning. It was pretty impressive to see these two at center ice, two great U.S. players who have combined for some unbelievable moments in the NHL, as well as more than 1,000 goals. Great game by both.
"When the day's over, we appreciate each other for what each has given to the game. We push each other to extremes and highs. There's a lot of history there."
The handshake is still one of the classiest moments in sports. Seeing these two go through it, and the respect they have for each other, was great to see.
