Q. How significant was that first goal so quick into the game for them?
COACH MACTAVISH: Yeah, it was big. And, I mean, I thought if we got through the first period, down one goal after the way I saw the game was starting, that we would be poised and in good position. But then Cam Ward shut the door on a few chances that we had in the third period.

COACH MACTAVISH: No, not at all. I knew they were coming. I have been around long enough to know that a team doesn't get to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals by being wallflowers. And we knew they were going to come. Maybe it was in the -- a product of the fashion in which we beat them in Game 6. It really -- I mean, not that motivation is ever too much of an issue in Game 7, but they had something to prove and came out like that.
