Quote of the Day
“You know the way they’re going to play. It’s been the same for many years now. Marty (Brodeur) is so good with the puck back there. We have to be really smart about where we put the puck on our dump-ins. I think it’s important we understand for us to play well we need to get on our forecheck and wear teams down.”
