They said it
"We're getting a little more stamina in our game, our engines are running a little bit longer, we're a little bit calmer in pressure situations. We're willing to give up offense, which sounds strange for our team, at the right time to get the right people on the ice." -- Kings coach Todd McLellan
"(The Kings) have won three in a row and they're almost back in the race. They're playing young guys and they've still got some high-end guys up front. It's a dangerous team." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
