They said it
"You want to come out and show what you're about. I've only played one game (this season), so for me it's about getting back in. I'm excited to play. I've been waiting around a lot the last few weeks in Chicago. It's good to be here now. Getting the opportunity to play from the start is big." -- Red Wings forward Brendan Perlini
"They've been playing really well. In a lot of their games I thought they were the better team. They certainly play a similar style (to Carolina). They try to push the pace. They've got some real speedy guys who look for breakaways and they actually get a couple every night." -- Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour
