They said it
"I think we've been to a couple home openers on the road, and usually those games start with a lot of emotion and the crowd and the players are usually excited. And first periods are really high intensity, so it's good that we've experienced that before and we're expecting no less than that with Boston." -- Devils coach John Hynes
"I was really looking forward to it. Coming in last year late, halfway through, you miss a lot. This is one of the things. But you look forward to doing this, and just you know, just getting hockey back here at the Garden, seeing the fans again and playing in this building." -- Bruins forward Charlie Coyle, a native of South Weymouth, Massachusetts, who was traded to Boston on Feb. 20
