"I talked to Q late last night, after the game. We talked about the game. He watched the majority of it and he was very pleased and very happy about the game. I know he has some tests today, but he was laughing when I talked to him last night. He was in good spirits. He was joking and laughing on the phone, so it was good to hear." -- Mike Haviland
"Minnesota is winning. Calgary is winning. The teams around us are winning. Every night we need to be 100-percent focused and we need to bring that detail to our game, that hard-work mentality, in order to stay in this race because teams are winning." -- Jonathan Quick
"They signed me to be myself and I don't think they want me to be the Selke Trophy winner or something like that." -- Ilya Kovalchuk
"They're the team I played the other half of my career, essentially, with. There's so many great memories there. I'm grateful that the team would pick that night to do that. It couldn't really be better timing for me." -- Rod Brind'Amour
