TJ BRODIE ON MORNING SKATE

"Felt good out there. Nice to be back with the guys, the full team, and get back at it."

 

BRODIE ON APPRECIATING GAME MORE 

"Ya, I think so. I think after everything it sort of gives you a different outlook. One thing I noticed is that, you know, you have to try and enjoy the game more. It's a game and it's supposed to be fun … getting back to having fun is key."

BILL PETERS ON BRODIE

"Good - no, he's real good. He looks good. Game-time decision as we talked about yesterday. But, no, looks good. Looks promising."

 

Video: "He looks good, looks promising."

 

ANDREW MANGIAPANE ON KEY VS. PENS

"I think managing the puck. That's big for our team. Making the play when they play's there. If it's not there, you have to manage it and put it in the corner and set your next line up for success, type thing. You don't wanna be trapped in your own zone and the next shift, the guys are trapped in their zone, too. I think that's puck management - we're good enough to make plays when they are there, and other times you have to be smarter and not try and force things."

 

Video: "We have to play like we did in the third period."

 

NOAH HANIFIN ON PITTSBURGH

"It's gonna be a good game. They are a fast team with a lot of high-end skill and they play hard. They have a great PK - I think they are second or third in the league right now. It's going to be a challenge. It's a tough building to play in. It's going to be a good challenge for us but I think we're excited to go."

 

Video: "Getting that off our backs has been a big relief."

 

DILLON DUBE ON PENS

"They're a good team. They play the right way. They're still one of the top teams - you come and you get excited to play them. For us, it's kinda more worried for ourselves tonight and build from the game Saturday and get ready to go for it."

 

PETERS ON AREAS HIS TEAM CAN IMPROVE

"Everywhere. It's everywhere. You talk about faceoffs, you talk about powerplay, penalty-kill, talk about the road powerplay, talk about defensively, talk about offensively, plays through the neutral zone, o-zone transition, d-zone transition, any of those subjects are fair game."
