They said it
"It would help. You fall behind 2-0 like we did early in that Florida game, you dig yourself a hole. Teams that we're playing on this trip are very good teams and they're tough to dig out of holes against. We'd like to score the first one tonight." -- Sharks forward Logan Couture
"I think they're going to be pretty dangerous tonight. They've lost their last couple games and when you've been in that situation you come out desperate and hungry. We're expecting that from that team. I think discipline will be a big key for us tonight. They've had a great power play for so many years. They're always dangerous." -- Predators defenseman Dan Hamhuis
