NHL Central Scouting's B.J. MacDonald:
"Petan really improved, even from the start of the year. The difference from last year is that he (played) with much more confidence and has gained a step, which (allowed) him to drive the net. He has improved his quickness; he (now beats) defensemen out of the corners with his quickness. He's improved his overall play in handling the puck and distribution to linemates."
Game 4 can't come fast enough. We're pretty anxious to play them again. They're nothing special. We're a pretty damn good hockey team too. We're not shying away from anything. We're in this series to win the Stanley Cup, and they're in our way to win it.
— Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson said after his team's loss to the Penguins in Game 3 of their Round 1 Stanley Cup Playoffs series
