QUOTABLES - FLAMES at PREDATORS

A rundown on what was discussed this morning at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville

by Calgaryflames.com staff @typilson / calgaryflames.com

ON FACING THE PREDATORS:

"It's going to be a good test for us … we've had some pretty wild games here with these guys the last little bit so it should be a good atmosphere and be pretty intense." - Chad Johnson

"They're a good team. They're a hard team to play. They have a good blend of players, in terms of fast and heavy, and the skill on the backend is very mobile. I think it's going to be a real quick game, I think it's going to have intensity in it, for sure, big four-point game for both teams." - Glen Gulutzan

ON BOUNCING BACK AFTER LOSS TO CAPS:

"I mean, it's huge. I think that just shows sort of our character and how much we've grown as a group. I think early on before we went on a little bit of a run there we were high and low and, again, that comes with experience. We went through that early on and I think now we've found that maturity and that growth as a group and that trust in our systems that if we just play the right way we can have success. I think you're seeing that experience now and tonight's going to be a good test for us just to see and to challenge ourselves in that belief system." - Johnson

JOHNSON ON GETTING THE START IN NET:

 "Obviously I want to play every night and feel like I can do that (but it's sometimes) the situation, timing of everything. We've been on a good roll here. It's hard to argue that. But I'm always ready and always willing to play whenever it is. If it's a four o'clock in the morning phone call that you're playing or anything like that I'm always willing to play every game. I'm always prepared."

FERLAND ON HIS MUMPS SCARE:

"I've been quarantined for the last fives days, symptom-free, so still waiting on the results to see what I had."
