"Long way from good enough. I don't know what's going on right now. We just seem to be fragile mentally for some reason. I don't think we have reason to be." -- Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog
"One of the top teams in the league. They're very fast, very quick. That top line is an incredible line. ... They burned us here last time, so we've got to be ready to play tonight and slow them down a little bit." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant
