SPEAKING
``What a night. Break my skate, first period. Second, my glove. Then my teeth. I didn't see myself yet. It's Halloween tomorrow. I don't have to buy a mask.'' - New York Rangers captain Jaromir Jagr on scoring the winning goal after getting bloodied in the mouth earlier in Monday night's 3-1 victory over Tampa Bay.
---
``We're playing a team that's like Tupperware. Once they close the lid and burp it, you're done,'' - San Jose coach Ron Wilson after the Sharks rallied for a 4-2 win at Dallas on Monday night.
