They said it
"One thing I really learned last year playing with a bad shoulder that sometimes it's not fair to the guys or to myself to be out there just to be out there. If I'm going to be out there, I want to be as close to 100 percent as I can be and play my game." -- Oilers defenseman Oscar Klefbom
"I don't know if there's a lot that's changed. During that streak when things weren't going our way (1-7-2 in 10 games before the winning streak) everyone was staying positive. Not like things were far off during that time. Coming to the rink every day during that span for practice or whatever we had to do, guys were still positive and having fun and that's what contributed to this six-game winning streak." -- Flyers goalie Carter Hart
