“It’s been a while and really feels good. I had to hold back the emotion a little bit, but I feel like I’m contributing. To put one in and an important goal was pretty special.”
– Washington defenseman Brian Pothier who scored the game-winning goal in a 5-3 victory over Tampa Bay Friday night. Pothier has missed more than a year after his career was put in jeopardy after sustaining a concussion in January 2008.
