They said it
"I mean hopefully the first game gets the ball rolling again in the right direction. Not going to say if it isn't successful that we're down for the road trip. It would be best if we could be successful tonight." -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau
"I think this is the exception, not the rule, obviously around here to have this many guys at the same time. You might have this many injuries but they're spread out. To come all at once is tough but you plug away. I think we've been doing a good job lately of staying in games and finding a formula that can be successful for us." -- Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy
