They said it
"You're [darn] right it does, he's one of our best players. In the time he's spent with me, he is one [heck] of a hockey player. There is so much there where in my mind where I can project what he can be. He can be something special." -- Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella on Josh Anderson
"It's a group effort, it's important to talk to one another (in our own zone.) They're good at (locking down defensively). They're a big team and play hard. They're good defensively and block lots of shots, so it can be difficult to get stuff going against them." -- Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly

Murray is a game-time decision. If he plays, Kukan will be a healthy scratch, Tortorella said. … Johnsson did not practice Sunday after blocking a shot with his leg against the Bruins but will play.
Bjorkstrand's next point will be his 100th in the NHL. … Jenner ended a seven-game pointless streak to start the season by scoring one goal against the Islanders. … Mikheyev has four points (two goals, two assists) in his past four games.
