They said it
"It is crazy. I was told young in my career to take it all in, it's going to go quick. I didn't believe it but 15 years later, a thousand games later, it's gone by quick. There's still a lot of hockey left in me and I'm still looking forward to that, but one day I'll sit back and remember this day." -- Stars forward Corey Perry
"I think we're starting to play a more complete game the last little while. We're going to need another one like that tonight. It starts from the drop of the puck. I think sometimes our starts aren't our best. I think if we start the game on the right foot it carries over for us." -- Flames goalie Cam Talbot
