A veteran just brings experience. He’s never too high or too low. You can’t think you’ve lost the series after one game; you have to be even-keeled and provide stability for the young guys. And that ties into the home-ice advantage. A vet has been there before, so he’s not intimidated to play in places like Montreal, where the crowd is loud.
When you’re in the playoffs, you just have to trust that everyone else on your team is going to step up.
