Quote of the Day
"It's devastating, the worst feeling I've ever had in hockey. I knew when I lost my first Stanley Cup, I'd get another chance. When we lost [here], that was it for me. So I'm very disappointed. ... I love to represent Canada."

Wayne Gretzky, after Canada's 2-1 loss to the Czech Republic
