They said it
"I'm excited about every game I play, whether it is my first or my 300th. Tonight we know we are going against a really fast team with some very special players. We just played them, so we know they play hard and they play fast." -- Oilers center Connor McDavid
"I can't say enough about the progress Leon Draisaitl has made. I've seen him at the World Championship and seen how hard he has worked to make himself into a highly elite player in this League. Then you've got Connor McDavid who has been elite from Day One, an elite second-line center like (Ryan) Nugent-Hopkins and a guy like James Neal. It will be a challenge." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill
