Game 2
“I don’t think he said too much, just because when Darryl doesn’t come in and say too much, that means he’s mad at us. That tells us we’re not playing well and we need to do something about it. If he’s just staring at us in the room and making little comments like ‘Oh, Toews is the best player in the world’ or things like that, then we know he’s not happy and we need to do something about it.”
