They said it
"It was good. I didn't get any shots the first 10 minutes, which can make it hard to get into a groove, but you have to stay patient and stay ready and the guys gave me a really good chance to win with all of that run support. You just want to play big back there and not give anything unreasonable up." -- Flyers goalie Brian Elliott on the Flyers' 6-2 win against the Golden Knights
"He's been good probably all three games he played, and I thought preseason he was strong too. So it's good. That's what we want, competition. And it's going to push both those guys to be better." -- Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton on goalie Robin Lehner
