Both players had injury problems in Phoenix's first-round series with the Chicago Blackhawks. Korpikoski missed Games 3 and 4 in Chicago after suffering a lower-body injury in Game 2. Rozsival took a hard hit into the boards late in Game 6 in Chicago. Both players were in the lineup for Thursday's 4-3 overtime victory in Game 1.
Pouliot played in two games in the first round, registering one assist. Schlemko, who missed 28 games late in the season following foot surgery, played in Game 6 against Chicago.
There's not much to say. We played like [garbage]. I think every guy in the room should be completely embarrassed about how they played tonight. Every single person. To start a road trip, one of the biggest road trips and have a division rival chasing you down and have a ton on the line, it's ridiculous how we played tonight.
