They said it
"I think we've had 12 breakaways this year. Usually you get 12 in 40 games, but we're getting a ton of breakaways. I think it's from the speed of [Michael] Grabner, [Vinnie] Hinostroza, [Clayton] Keller. When a team is on a forecheck, that's when they're at their most vulnerable because you've just got to get it by their layer and you get an odd-man rush. If you don't them out then you're in trouble, but we've done a nice job of getting pucks out to those speed guys." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
"You find out a lot about your group when you're going through the stretch we're going through. We've got to understand that this is adversity. You get off to a 2-0 start and everyone is telling you how great you are. We scored some goals and we got a highlight-reel goal, and I think it was really misleading some people and maybe misleading some of our guys in the locker room how this was going to play out." -- Rangers coach David Quinn
