"I put myself in this situation and so I had to dig myself out," said Rene Bourque, who was signed by Chicago as a non-drafted free agent in 2004 after playing collegiately at the University of Wisconsin. "I wouldn't have come here if I didn't think I could still play. ... It was up to me to perform and make a name for myself again."
"I really honestly didn't know that Kip was close to that record today but it doesn't surprise me with how good of a goalie he is and how good this team has been since he's been here," Bourque said. "He's played great and he's the reason why we're a good team most nights."
