They said it
"We have a couple of guys banged up, but it's the world that we live in, you have to be ready to play. Calgary is a good hockey club. We have 24 hours to get energized again and go into Calgary." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
"They've started with a real good start to the season. Goaltending has been really good, and that's a compliment to team defense and their structure in front of both guys and if they do break down both guys can make big saves at key times. They've played well. They've got a deep team. They've made some changes to their team that allows them to play faster." -- Flames coach Bill Peters
