"There's a lot of things that he does. … It's very impressive how he can win races and dart through holes and create space for himself. And then obviously he thinks the game at such a high level. He can pull people to him and use the space that he creates. Fun coaching him." -- Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton on forward Patrick Kane
"They've had some ups and downs [for] a couple years now, so they're a pretty hungry team, they want in [for] the playoffs. It's going to be a battle, it's always a tough building to play [in] here.
