They said it
"We obviously need a better start. In the last game against Arizona, we looked a little sleepy. We need to come ready to play in the first minute and play until the last minute of the game. We just need to play how we're supposed to play." -- Senators center Artem Anisimov
"We've taken the position of glass half full. Everybody goes through a stretch where you're 2-7-1 or 3-6-1. You're also going to have a stretch where you go 7-2-1. That's what we're going to have to do just to get back to .500 and keep grinding the rest of the way." -- Stars coach Jim Montgomery
