They said it
"Obviously have a lot of offense with (Radulov) over there and Seguin, Benn, Spezza. Guys that can you make play, so we don't want to get into a shootout with guys like that. But at the same time, we want to try and make them defend. I think whenever we play against offensive teams like that, we want to try and make them defend and push them back." -- Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty on the Stars.
"It's going to be fun. I've got my parents down here for this one, this is going to be the first time they see us play against each other live. We're looking forward to it and the bigger picture is we need to keep working on our game and find a way to get this one at home." -- Stars captain Jamie Benn on playing against brother Jordie Benn.
