They said it

"I've liked our energy a lot. I like the way that the guys are making the decision easier now that if you don't have something in front of you, you put it in behind you and go to work. You allow your legs to get in and then you can establish some momentum with your forecheck. But the energy, probably more than anything, has allowed us to have really solid starts." -- Flames coach Geoff Ward

"I'm not a believer in 'lessons learned.' We're men and we're professionals. This league is all about harsh reminders. If you're not ready to compete and the other team is, there isn't a team in this league that can't beat you and make you look bad. That's a harsh reminder. We talked enough about it the other night and that's why we're moving on." -- Stars coach Rick Bowness
