They said it
"I think we have a lot of skill in our lineup and we have a lot of players that can make plays. Skill can take over, but if you don't have the will, then skill doesn't show, and that's what we're seeing: We're doing skill and will right now, and I think that makes us a dangerous team." -- Stars coach Jim Montgomery after the win against the Canucks
"We just shot it more, kept it simple. When you do that, that's when lanes open up. We just did a good job keeping it simple and getting the puck to the net." -- Oilers center Connor McDavid on Edmonton's four power-play goals against the Avalanche
