Fast forward and Roenick was in the building as an analyst for NBC Wednesday night for the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup victory. The only chance Roenick had to play for the Cup was back then in 1992.
After the final buzzer sounded and the Blackhawks were celebrating on the ice, NBC cut back to the in-arena studio where Roenick was seated with Mike Milbury and Dan Patrick. Both Milbury and Roenick reflected on the game, with Roenick recalling an upset young fan from '92 after the Hawks had lost. Patrick asked Roenick to explain his emotions further and he understandably had trouble holding them in.
UPDATE: Roenick explained his reaction on The Dan Patrick Show Friday, saying, ""Philly was just beating me up because they thought I was rooting for the Blackhawks. That's just ridiculous and preposterous. I just couldn't control my emotions and didn't expect to be affected that way. I did everything I could to win a Stanley Cup for the Blackhawks and the Flyers and I wasn't able to do that. I spilled a lot of blood, broke bones and lost a lot of teeth to try to make that happen.".
