"You can't see how good you're playing until you see the bad parts. We talked about that as a team: maturity level, being honest with ourselves. One of the words in our locker room is authenticity. We have to be authentic and say what we do, do what we say." -- Panthers coach Bob Boughner
"We have to find a way to get to (Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo). The top line with [Aleksander Barkov] is one of the best lines in the League. We'll have to take them out of the game and not allow everyone else to beat us. It's easier said than done, but those are two of the biggest keys." -- Devils goalie Cory Schneider
