'“People don’t worry about that in Buffalo,” he said. “It’s just like going to another Bills game.”'
'“I know going back to Buffalo, that rink where I watched so many games, played mini sticks in the hallways, little things like, that I finally get to play on the ice after being there for so long.”'
‘”You look at the people in Buffalo that are successful, they worked hard,” Kane said. “It’s a hardworking city, and that’s what I want to keep with me the most.”‘
'“Things are going so well, so it’s time to turn it up a notch and keep going with it,” Numminen said before his teammates flew to Washington for tonight’s game against the Capitals.'
'“We’ve waited, and it’s full go for him,” coach Lindy Ruff said Thursday. “This isn’t a case where we’re putting him in and we’re hoping he gets through the game. We’re putting him in and he’s going to play a big role for us.”'
'The distance between Kane’s home on McKinley Parkway and HSBC Arena is exactly 5.4 miles, but for years they might as well have been in different universes.'

'Kane expects he'll know about 500 people in attendance at the game, but he needed to get only about 20 tickets because ''some of my buddies already had tickets or don't know I get some.'''
