PEI Staff Room Memory

I remember being in the staff room at Birchwood Intermediate School in Charlottetown. PEI. School was over and the teachers got together to watch the final period. While the team was down 5-3 heading into the third, being a Canadian, I always thought we were capable of coming back. It certainly was under tough circumstances playing in Russia as well as the reffing of the game. Henderson was at the right spot at the right time. I have never seen so many people so excited about a hockey event or otherwise in all my life.
