lol at Niitty and Kapanen's convo

Niittymaki made sure that slim lead held up.
"It's a pretty good effort after the first period," he said. "We didn't give up a lot scoring chances, only a couple of two-on-ones, a lot of long shots. We played a good road game. I just tried to think 'next shot' and whether I make the save or not."

Sami Kapanen, whose locker was next to Niittymaki's, snapped when he heard that.
"I'm sick and tired of you being so modest," Kapanen said. "Will you just come out and say, 'I played great?' "

He did in the third period. Niittymaki knocked down Boyes' one-timer in the slot off a nice feed from Samsonov. Boyes came right back a few minutes later, driving the net hard from the right circle, but Niittymaki got a piece of the puck.
"It hit my stick a little bit," Niittymaki said with a smile.
