"Guys are just finding chemistry with our lines. It's pretty rounded scoring. You're seeing everybody kind of get on the board, a lot of different guys scoring. That always helps. " -- Islanders center Mathew Barzal
"The individual skill in this League is through the roof. Guys are going to make plays, especially when they're up a man. I think I said it last game: the best form of penalty kill is to not be in the box at all. " -- Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds
