"Brenden's always all over it, knocking on the door almost every shift," Star goalie Marty Turco said.

In the split second it took John LeClair to digest all the information his eyes took in, he knew what he had to do. Unexpectedly finding the puck on his stick along the left boards, LeClair quickly seized the moment. He saw teammate Stephan Lebeau to his right and immediately realized that only King defenseman Darryl Sydor was in front of him, posing the lone obstacle between LeClair and the Kings' net.

John LeClair's duties on the line with Kirk Muller and Brian Bellows are simple. "Kirk is just a workaholic, he's always on the puck, working hard, and he has a great playmaking touch," LeClair said. "And Brian's a natural goal-scorer. I muck and grind." LeClair's role might be the least glamorous of the three, but his tenacity around the net served him well Saturday.

Chicago Bear wide receiver Curtis Conway says taking a hit while streaking over the middle on third and long is child's play compared to what he endured growing up in South Central Los Angeles. "My father died when I was 13, and my uncles made sure I was tough," Conway told the Chicago Sun-Times. "If I got beat up, they made me go back and fight again. That's bragging rights in the 'hood." Trivia time: Who hit home runs with four major league teams in the same season? Greg who?
