Too bad Caps goalie Mike Palmateer wasn't around that night in Quebec City. If someone had fired a slice in his direction, he'd probably have eaten it.
Defenseman Jim McTaggart gave the culinary details to the Post. "Mike told the training staff that he needed pepperoni pizza before each game.
"So they kept a stack of them in the equipment room and before the game would put one in the sauna and heat it for 30 minutes, then serve it to Mike."
