"When we're playing our game, we're getting pucks deep and forechecking. Guys are going to get tied down a little more if we have the puck a little more. The first few games, we didn't have the puck as much." -- Islanders center Mathew Barzal, who has nine points (three goals, six assists) in his past seven games
"We've got a good team coming in here tonight. They're pretty hot lately, and they're going to the net hard, so we've got to make sure we're ready to battle and make sure we clean up the garbage in front." -- Ducks defenseman Korbinian Holzer
