NIKITA ZADOROV ON THE TEAM'S 'FOUNDATION':
"I think we have confidence. We're in kind of a tough stretch right now, but I don't think we lost the confidence, definitely. There's lots of experience in this dressing room that have been through what we're going through in their careers. If young guys didn't, then we talk about that. I know I've been through bad stretches as well. Like, all you have to do - we've got to look back at what made us so successful at the start of the year. That's checking. We've got to check.
"Obviously, we have lots of talent on our team, but we're a check-first team. We're playing heavy and you're either checking with your sticks or being physical - doesn't matter. You've got to win some battles. This is a battle league and if you don't win battles, you're not going to get the puck. We've been chasing a lot these last (few) games and that's the biggest thing.
"Our goal is to get the puck back; keep the puck, keep the possession, and get some shots through, get the shot volume back and control the game.
"We know what we need to do and I'll bet we'll bring it next game."
