They said it
"We need our younger guys, including me, to push older guys to get better every day, starting at practice and in games as well. We've had a lot of young guys this year and we've been doing a pretty good job, so we've got to keep pushing for the rest of the year." -- Kings forward Adrian Kempe
"(The younger players) have been a big help. They bring a lot of energy on the ice and in the dressing room. They're a pleasure to be around. They're very enthusiastic and they're having fun." -- Ducks assistant coach Mark Morrison
