They said it
"The chances have been there a ton for me. I could've put a few in the net, but I'm going to stick with it. Other times, I've gotten down on myself, but it's a big year. Guys like me need to step up offensively and help out." -- Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert, who has yet to score this season, said on Monday.
"We kind of left him out to dry there the first couple of games. We all know he is a good goalie, we see how hard he works at practice and just the kind of guy he is." -- Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba on Steve Mason
