They said it
"We expect them to come out with a lot of energy and we know they will get a lot of fan support. The key for us is we've just got to treat it like any other road game. It feels a little weird going to Las Vegas. It's something new. But it's a business trip. Our job is to play hockey no matter where the game is. That's what we're going to do." -- Coyotes defenseman Kevin Connauton
"I'm not going to say a lot about it. I'm going to say the hockey stuff. I'm going to try to make it feel like a regular game day as much as possible. That's my job." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
