Great moments are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here, tonight. One game.

If we played ‘em ten times, they might win nine.

But not this game. Not tonight.

Tonight, we skate with 'em.

Tonight, we stay with 'em, and we shut them down because we can!

Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world.

You were born to be hockey players – every one of ya.

And you were meant to be here tonight.

This is your time.

Their time – is done. It’s over. 

I’m sick and tired of hearin’ about what a great hockey team the Canucks have.

Screw 'em!

This is your time!! 

 Now go out there and take it!


 For those of you that don’t know this is the 1980 Herb Brooks speech
