They said it
"If you're just going to worry about defending against them, you are not going to have much success. We have to do our job against a team that really resembles a lot the last team we played in Carolina. We have to rely on our strengths. We feel we're pretty deep from the first line to fourth line and throughout the game, have everybody contribute to our success." -- Canadiens coach Claude Julien
"He's a real good person, Freddie Andersen likes him, Steve Briere (goaltending coach) likes him, he's got good work habits and people with those continue to get better. If you look at our first month, he's got four big games so we need to be in a situation where we have a guy we can count on. Nothing like Saturday night at home against Montreal so good [chance] for him." -- Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on Hutchinson
