They said it
"It's important we're not caught by surprise (by Minnesota). There's going to be an urgency and desperation. Obviously they don't want to fall off the pace, and we're a team that's ahead of them, so they'll be ready to go and it's important we are too." -- Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton
"I think (Stalock has) played pretty well for us. Why not go back to him? His record, he's got (11) wins. We're hoping to find lightning in a bottle from somebody. Al can give a spark." -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau
