NEVER Give up!

With the game 3 loss in double overtime, the Detroit Red Wings now have their work cut out for them, being down in the 1st-round NHL '05-'06 playoffs, best-of-seven series with the Edmonton Oilers 2 games to 1. But in the words of Maurice "The Rocket" Richard: "Never give up!"

(Maurice Richard, known for his speed on the ice and his powerful shots, spent 18 years with the Montreal Canadiens. His career included eight Stanley Cup Championships, and he was the first National Hockey League (NHL) player to score 50 goals in 50 games. When he died in 2000 at the age of 78, Prime Minister Chr├ętien remarked of this most dedicated hockey player that he "...defined and transcended the game of hockey.")
