"I'm not looking at six out of seven [on the road], I'm looking at Tampa Bay. That's how you have to look at it. There's so many good teams and we have to go through them, you have to win your games and take care of it." -- Islanders coach Barry Trotz
"You know what you're going to get out of [the Islanders]. They're going to be a hard-checking team, they are really sound defensively and play well in their structure. So it's a matter of us putting enough pressure on them to kind of break them down a little bit." -- Lightning defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk
