Playoff fever in St. John's

This is the front page article from The Telegram which is the St. John's daily newspaper.

An excerpt from the article

Trent Yawney had listened to the questions and provided answers, and the interview was drawing to a close. Then, unprompted, the Syracuse Crunch coach spoke about his four-day stay in St. John’s.

“I didn’t like the way it ended, but that was about the only thing I didn’t like,” Yawney said Friday night after the Crunch’s 4-3 overtime loss to the St. John’s IceCaps at Mile One Centre ended Syracuse’s American Hockey League season.

“I’d never been here before. It was the first time for me and I really enjoyed it. The fans … they’ve got a great thing going with these fans. They’re crazy and they’re passionate. They cheer against (opposition teams) on the ice and show the greatest hospitality to them everywhere else.”

It’s pretty cool that (the IceCaps) are the farm team of the Winnipeg Jets, because this is a mini Winnipeg.”
