“It’s great to win the game. That’s all it is. No matter how you do it, you win a game. Now our focus is Game 2. That’s all it is.”
“We weren’t playing our best, so we definitely wanted to go and play 20 minutes hard and see what would happen.”
“We’re fine. Tough team. We’ve got our hands full, obviously.”
“I think the challenge for us is – as Darryl would say – is ‘starting on time.’”
“We weren’t good at the start. We weren’t good at any point of the game tonight. We didn’t deserve to win. Our power play was brutal – our passes weren’t on, guys weren’t shooting the puck, breakout was off and timing was off.”
“Yeah, it was awesome. I found out during the press conference that we haven’t played a Game 7 since 2002. I can’t wait to get back there. It’s big for me.”
“[It’s] obviously huge, but we’re only halfway there. We’ve won eight games out of 16. We’re happy with where we’re at, certainly not satisfied. 30 teams down to four is great.”
