They said it
"We just have to keep building our game. When we didn't win in Florida (5-4 loss) or Tampa (2-1 loss), our focus was on how we can keep getting better and not on the result. Having won against San Jose, it can't be about the result; it has to be about how we can keep getting better." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill
"We're giving him a home game. It's been a while. He deserves it, man. That guy has competed and played his heart out for us. He deserves a home start for sure, so he's getting it." -- Stars coach Rick Bowness on goalie Anton Khudobin starting at home for the first time since Nov. 23
