Lundqvist on playing against (and with) the firemen and cops

Henrik Lundqvist:

On playing against and with the cops and firemen:
“It was fun. They’re not bad. Some guys are pretty skilled. It was a great practice.”

That Torts took such pleasure in seeing some of them score on him:
“Yeah (laughs).
“The thing when you play guys, you never know who’s going to be really skilled and who’s not as skilled. So it’s hard to know what to expect. But it’s definitely a good thing to do. Torts told us yesterday that we were doing it and it was fun. Talking to some of the guys who were in the firefighter championship a couple of weeks ago. They skate probably two three times a week. Not bad. It was fun.”

Did Torts tell him to ease up?
“A little bit, yeah (laughs). But it’s hard to not compete. But that was pretty much the message.”

Told some of them celebrated their goals like Vinny Prospal, Lundqvist said, “Yeah. I would, too.”
