Winnipeg Sun "Mathieu Perreault could be onto something, if only playing with a broken stick didn't usually result in a two-minute minor. Perreault used a broken stick - a cracked shaft, to be precise - to fool Craig Anderson with a change-up on a forehand deke in the sixth round of the shootout to give the..." November 09
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "There will, of course, be nights like this.
