They said it
"When you're down two goals, it's tough to battle back and win every game as we have in the past, but we've got to learn from it. It's no recipe for success. We've got to figure it out." -- Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau
"We haven't played perfect hockey in the last while, but we're right there in every game. We've got to get that killer instinct. … I don't know what the word is, but it seems like we're scared to lose in the third period instead of going out there and playing confident, trying to win." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
