from the Ottawa Citizen,
“I think we’re a different team now than we were in past years,” Muckler said. “A lot of people like to talk about the different preparation this year, going through adversity at the start of the year, which we never had before. They were really bad times, no question. We didn’t seem to have any chemistry on our club.
“But it all came together when we ran into injuries. When (Jason) Spezza, (Antoine) Vermette, and (Mike) Fisher went down, people who weren’t getting a lot of ice time were getting a lot of ice time, and we found out we had more depth in the organization than we thought we had. And I think it proved to the coaches that they could go to these people and put them in crucial situations and see the same results.
