They said it
"We have to jump on them early and get the puck and possess it for at least the first 20 minutes and try and get the first goal because I think it'll be huge, especially with them traveling and having a tough game last night." -- Red Wings center Dylan Larkin
"We played bad enough to lose and not good enough to win these games right now. We have some surges, but there's still some inconsistencies to our game. Just need more out of guys like me, out of other guys, if we want to turn this thing around." -- Devils center Travis Zajac
