Quote of the Day

"It seems like on this little run here you can’t pull away from anyone because everyone behind us and right around us is getting wins. They’ve been playing some good hockey. We’ve been playing a lot of games in the past month or so that are of the utmost importance – this is just another one for us – a big two points."
