They said it
"When you watch them, what stands out is obviously the high-end forward group that they're putting out there. That's the danger. You just can't give them a breath … That's what they have the ability to do, is they can score quick. And that's what scares you." -- Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour on facing Winnipeg
"They're real cohesive. They play well as a five-man unit. They don't really have a ton of breakdowns, so if we can force some of those it'll be important that we capitalize on our chances." -- Jets forward Adam Lowry on facing Carolina
