Pre-game Quotes From Avs Head Coach Joe Sacco

Here’s what Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco had to say about playing the Kings tonight:

“It’s no secret that when we play these guys we have to be the hard-working team.  I think LA presents challenges in may different phases of the game. ”

On going 4-0-0 against the Kings last season: “I thought our work ethic all four times was strong.  We played the game the right way.  We tried to limit turnovers.  We tried to play in the offensive zone as much as possible…not making it a track meet type of game.  We did that and we were committed to that game plan when we played LA last year.”

“It’s going to be an exciting game [tonight]. They’re a great team and we need our best tonight, no question.”
