Playing on a line with the Sedin twins, are you picking up any Swedish?

Joseph F. Wolos, Philadelphia.

No, but I have been checking bookstores for Swedish for Dummies so that maybe if I get lucky I could learn in a hurry.

Was scoring the game-winning goal for Canada at the world championships the highlight of your career so far?

It certainly was one of them I think the other was playing my first game in 96' for the Caps against the Blackhawks.

What is your favorite example of a road trip prank?

Anton Alderliesten, New Haven, Conn.
