They said it
"We're getting closer and closer every time we take the ice. I think the guys are getting more comfortable with the way we play. Now we start playing some teams in the East and some teams specifically in our division. Now we've got to have a real good segment." -- Hurricanes coach Bill Peters
"They're a team that really flies under the radar, don't get as much attention. They obviously haven't made the playoffs in a while, but I don't think it's because they don't compete or they're not talented. They've been developing a lot of young players for a long time; you can especially see it on their back end. Good, strong [defense], that's very mobile. They really challenge you. They really get into your face and they've got some crafty forwards that are skilled and can make some plays." -- Islanders captain John Tavares on the Hurricanes
