• "They've got high-end talent. They're fast. They're at a point where people want to impress people. We were like that last year (at this time). So, it's a dangerous game. I don't care who we play, we can't take anybody for granted." -- Rick Tocchet
• "Every game is so important right now for us. Hopefully we can just keep playing the way that we are. I mean, we know why we're being successful, and that's hard work and sticking to the system that we're playing. That's what we're going to have to do (vs. Detroit)." -- Oliver Ekman-Larsson
