BILL PETERS ON MONDAY MATINEE
"If it was a night game I probably wouldn't have practiced (Sunday) but it is a 2 o'clock game and I wanted to make sure the goalies got some shots and get the motor running a little bit."
MARK GIORDANO ON RECENT ROAD TRIP
"We were .500 on the trip. A couple shootout losses that could've gone either way. You would've liked to have gotten at least one of those. All in all I thought we did a lot of good things but I think we can control games more and be more assertive."
Video: "I feel like we can control games more"
SEAN MONAHAN ON THE NO.-1 LINE
"When you're not producing, creating chances, it's frustrating. You've got three guys who want to make an impact night-in, night-out. We've got to get back to simplifying things."
MONAHAN ON FACING OPPOSITION TOP LINES
"We've been doing that for five, six years. You've going against the top guys so you know what to expect. This time of the season is a grind. The game changes. It gets harder."
MONAHAN ON KEY AGAINST COYOTES
"It's our start. A pretty common thing people say but (Monday) our start is huge. We've got to dictate the game and try and take over right from the start."
Video: "Smitty's gonna start tomorrow."
