I know he had to understate it, but to say we got "a little life" and that "the building got loud" doesn't do it justice. We put Chicago on their heels for most of the third, and the building willed both goals. From my free seat in my living room I told my friends, "The crowd is trying to carry the team now." Not too long after that Spaling made a beautiful play that set up Smithson, and setting up Smithson is the hardest play in hockey . Obviously we didn't see the ovation, but coming back from commercial Pete and Terry were breaking down a play, a segment to which I gave very little attention. All of the sudden I hear Pete having a heart attack. Weber had scored.
As was said earlier, I'm not sure who said what in the locker room after the second, but it worked.
