Quote of the Day
“Obviously, they’re going to have a great atmosphere up there. Their fans are passionate. We expect them to be behind their team. For us, it’s business as usual. We’ve got to continue to play our game and get on the forecheck and force them to make bad decisions with the puck.”


-Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald,
on what he expects in Winnipeg
