SAY WHAT: 'GOING TO BE A TOUGH TEST'

The buzz around the rink as the Flames get set to host the Jets

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

NOAH HANIFIN ON FACING THE JETS:

"Obviously they've got some really high-end players and are dealing with some adversity right now. But every time we play Winnipeg, it's a tough game - a battle. We play them three times this year and they've got some really high-end players over there, like (Mark) Scheifele, (Blake) Wheeler, some big bodies that have good shots and are good around the net. As D men tonight, we have to take care of that aspect, be strong on pucks and we know it's going to be a tough test, for sure."

SAY WHAT: 'GIVE THE PLAYERS CREDIT'

The buzz around the rink following a big win over the Blackhawks

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

DARRYL SUTTER ON HOW THE GAME PLAYED OUT:

"Wasn't much left there, was there? You could see it right from the start. There's been games where we've been physically there and not quite sharp mentally, but tonight there wasn't much. But like we've talked about, it's one of those games you've got to know how to win.

"The bottom line is they are tired. We were gone the whole time in the eastern time zone, get home in the middle of the night and then have to play this game. It's almost not fair. Give the players credit."

SAY WHAT: 'THIS ONE WAS SPECIAL'

The buzz around the rink following a 4-0 win over the Bruins in Beantown

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

DAN VLADAR ON A HAPPY RETURN TO BOSTON:

"It means a lot, but I just came here with the mindset to get a W. I wasn't trying to think about who I'm playing against, because obviously I've got a bunch of friends on the Bruins team. I want them to do well, but if you come here as an opponent - I knew my role, I know who I'm playing against, I know who is my family. I was just fighting for our team and I really feel like a part of this team, you know? It was my mindset to come in here, not think about it, not (joke) around with guys. I wasn't even saying hi to them before the game. I was really trying to focus on my game - our game - and just get the W.

"The shutout... If you would have told me yesterday, I wouldn't have believed it. Obviously, it's great, but the season is still at the start, so you can't get too high from it. You still have to keep going."

ANDREW MANGIAPANE ON HIS TORRID PACE:

Mangiapane is the fastest player in franchise history to score 13 goals on the road

"Playing with a lot of good players. They're giving me the puck right now and I'm just having to put them home. We've been playing a lot on the road as well, so that helps. I think we played a solid game tonight and we're going to need another one tomorrow."

I'm sure it will be a loud, passionate group here. Anytime you can open a new building and be part of history, it's pretty sweet."

Quotes from the road after a big 5-0 win over the Sabres

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

MATTHEW TKACHUK ON MANGIAPANE'S GREAT NIGHT:

"We all wanted him to get it (the hat-trick). He had like a million shot attempts. He played really well tonight. Still such a humble kid. Just kind of scratching the surface of what he can be and show the hockey world that he's one of the best in the NHL."

"You need to have a good mindset. Coming into tonight, it's a challenge and it's an important game. … We're hungry. We want to win and we want to win as a team. Tonight's going to be a challenge. They're a hard-working team and we've got to be ready from the get-go."

SAY WHAT: 'CAME WITH THE RIGHT MINDSET'

The buzz around the rink following a shutout win over the Sens

by CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

DAN VLADAR ON FIRST NHL SHUTOUT:

"Guys played great in front of me. … I'm going to get (the puck) framed. I'm super excited about it. But like I said, I had no rebounds, I saw all the pucks, so the game wasn't really hard for me. The guys played great. We came with the right mindset for tonight and we've got to keep this going."
