They said it
"At times we play very good hockey, but we're way too inconsistent. We've got to get that mentality that every night is going to be a hard-working night and bear down, and hopefully we can string some games together." -- Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg
"Every game is important for us. We've been in spots in the past where the games don't mean much and it's easy to play those games because you play loose. These games here, there's a lot at stake." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
