They said it
"Everybody needs the points, everybody wants the points, everybody's desperate, (and) so we've got to be more desperate than those guys. I think if we play, for the most part, as solid as we did for, probably, eight periods out of nine last week, then maybe we'll get a little puck luck and things will go our way." -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau
"(Kase) is such a great energy guy. It starts right when he walks into the rink in the morning. He has a smile on his face. He loves to practice. You can see his energy and his passion for the game. That's really contagious." -- Ducks coach Dallas Eakins
