Q. History of Game 7s suggest a home team in the Final always wins like 11 and 2. All the games are usually very low scoring. Do you change anything as far as the strategy as a coach is concerned as opposed to early in the Playoffs, because they are all 2-1, 3-1 games Game 7s?
COACH LAVIOLETTE: I think it's real important that we show up, play our game. We're not going to change anything. We tried to make a couple of tweaks we were doing for Game 6. I think regardless of what you try and do, if you are not skating and competing as well as the other team is you are going to find it difficult to be successful.
And really those were two areas where we were lacking. We're back in our building where we have had a lot of success. Our fans will be here. There will be a lot of energy. Obviously, everybody knows what is at stake. Season is over tomorrow night. Our guys will be ready to have some fun.
Q. In his return Erik Cole played decent number of minutes. What's your expectation as far as how much you will be able to lean on him in Game 7 for ice time?
COACH LAVIOLETTE: I would expect that it's probably somewhere around the same. Hard to give exact numbers or minutes, but probably somewhere between 15, 20 minutes depending on the game, how he's playing, and how he's feeling.
