Peter Budaj, on playing for a team that tries to keep shots against to a minimum:
It’s great, this team has been playing really well in front of me and I think we’re working really hard and working together. I think, we had a span of games where we didn’t play that well but right now I think we’re ... Read More
Davis Payne, on what he looks for in a first preseason game, and whether he saw it:

Luke Schenn, on the loss:
I mean, you can’t spot them a three-goal lead. It’s tough to come back on anyone, let alone a team that you’re facing in the playoffs. Our penalty kill wasn’t near good enough tonight, and special teams were obviously the huge difference. They got three power play goals, a... Read More

First things first, I think playing Arizona, they’ve been close games. The power play’s played such a big part in it. I think they’ve scored four and we’ve scored three, and they’ve been all really important goals. I think that’s a... Read More
