What do you think of the Bruins’ chances vs. the Canucks?

I try not to think too much because I get nervous when I think.

How do you feel about singing the national anthem at the Stanley Cup [3] finals?

It is a great honor. I have been waiting many years. I’€™ve been like a bride waiting at the alter for all these years. I have to pinch myself and make sure this is really going on.

Do you do anything special for road games?

I like to listen to other singers. I like competition. It spurs you on to be better.

Who else in the league is good?

I don’€™t know, I don’€™t know names. I don’€™t get that involved.

Who is your favorite player on the Bruins?

I haven’€™t thought of that. ‘€¦ Tim Thomas [4], because we’€™re both old men.
