Quotes

“She said "there's a fire in the building, you've got to get out and come with me" ” White said
...With three minutes to go, it looked like the Islanders had an insurance marker when Bruder ( "you can’t stop him you can only hope to contain him”) finished a nifty give-and-go with Lindsay but was whistled for an offside. To add further insult, Bruder was penalized for shooting the puck after the whistle. Stirling pulled its goalie to go six-on-four to try to get the equalizer. However, with intense forechecking from Donovan, Carswell, Lindsay and Twofoot and stellar defending from Macey, Higgs and Heddon on the back end, the Blues were unable to muster any chances and the Islanders held on for a 2-1 victory and the tournament championship."
"Latest we're hearing that an officer and two civilians shot in the front lobby" Toronto criminal lawyer Will Jaksa, who was locked down in courtroom 202, tweeted. That report has not yet been confirmed by authorities
