Jamal Mayers Gives Speech 

There of course is no video of the Jamal Mayers speech, but if you look back at the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs it could very well be the most important event during the 2 month marathon to the 2013 Stanley Cup Final Championship.

Mayers gave a speech to the team after being down 3 games to 1 telling them that they worked to hard to not believe they wouldn’t come back and beat the Detroit Red Wings.  Mayers speech has become legendary because the team looked defeated when they couldn’t solve Jimmy Howard or what Mike Babcock was throwing at them.

Mayer also dressed during warm ups and he did some gamesmanship moves against the Red Wings by firing pucks at

Jimmy Howard

.

Like we said earlier, the Hawks petitioned for Mayers to get his name on the Stanley Cup.  He’s now works for the Chicago Blackhawks which is fitting for a player with such leadership skills.
