New Year's Eve, U.S.-Canada, it's going to be an unbelievable environment. I'm expecting like an NHL kind of playoff atmosphere.
We know we're going to get booed, and I think it motivates us a lot. It's going to be a tough crowd to play against, but that excites us a lot, so we're getting ready for it.
Hopefully we get a win. That's the goal. We want to get a win and come in the first place of our...

Giving up six goals in the first real game after giving up six goals to end the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoff run wasn't an ideal start, but three straight road wins was a nice rebound. The Ducks have five in a row at home coming up, and there's still a lot of moving pieces in the Anaheim lineup. What they did to the Buffalo Sabres was mighty impressive, even if Ted Nolan compared his team to a peewee...

more saves this season than Varlamov (1,867), who had 142 more than second-place Kari Lehtonen of Dallas. Credit to Patrick Roy and Francois Allaire for changes they made to Varlamov's glove hand but also to the goaltender who could become elite with one strong playoff run.
