They said it
"We're worried about how we play. They're a deep team; they have Corey Perry on the fourth line. But we have to play our game. We recognize who we're playing against, their skill sets and what they do. But ultimately we have to play our game to give ourselves a chance to win." -- Oilers coach Dave Tippett
"It's not just two guys. I know we hear a lot about [Leon] Draisaitl and [Connor] McDavid, but they have a lot of other really good players. I know they've been struggling lately but that's not indicative of their team. We're all going to go through something like we went through at the start of the year. Things don't always go your way. They're a very well-balanced and well-coached team. We know how good they are, regardless of the last four games." -- Stars coach Rick Bowness on the Oilers
