DETROIT, MI - MAY 04: Kyle Palmieri #51 of the Anaheim Ducks and Jonathan Ericsson #52 of the Detroit Red Wings battle for control of the puck during the first period of Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs on May 4, 2013 at Joe Lewis Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
