"The weather is nice, and there's a good atmosphere and a lot of fun," Kurri said at Staples Center recently. "The Forum was a lot of fun to play at in those days. You can't beat that feeling. ... Today, coming to the game, you look outside at all the people wearing the jerseys, and there's two Stanley Cup (banners) in the rafters here, and Anaheim has one, so that's pretty amazing for hockey in California. I'm happy to see that it's a global game now."
