"I will admit that, like most people, identical twins kind of weird me out," said Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault. "It's not natural. But at least I can handle being around the kind of twins who don't try to be exactly the same in every way. Unfortunately, the Sedins are not those kind of twins."
Daniel and Henrik are known to dress in the same blue, white and green hockey uniform. They have similar hairstyles and facial hair. They hang out together. They are both heterosexual. And, perhaps weirdest of all, the twins have their own special language, which they call "Swedish."
"It's incredibly creepy," said Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo. "Most guys in this locker room, you yell out their name and they turn around. But with them? If you yell out 'Sedin!' they both turn around. Weirdos. I'm glad I'm a goalie and they're forwards so I don't have to interact with them too much."

Looks like we found the one impolite Canadian.
The Canadiens won Game 6 to tie the series, but even the players in the arena say they noticed a distinct Game 5 atmosphere.
"We were talking about it on the bench throughout the whole game," said Montreal wing Mike Cammalleri. "It felt very Game 5-y. A few guys felt it had a Game 4 atmosphere at the beginning and one of my teammates, who shall remain nameless, said it felt like a Game 8. But he was hungover. Eventually we all agreed that it was a Game 5 atmosphere."
Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara agreed.
"You can recognize a Game 6 atmosphere right away, what with all of its Game 6-like attributes," he said. "And this game didn't have it. It had more intensity than a Game 4, but for some reason the atmospheric conditions were not up to a Game 6 level and definitely not a Game 7 level."
