They said it
"We know what our game plan and our systems look like, and when we get off our game plan a little bit we see we're not as effective. When we play together, stick to our systems and everyone's pulling their weight we look like a pretty good team." -- Blues forward Jaden Schwartz
"We're excited to play in tonight's game for sure. I thought obviously last game was one of our better ones the way we played moving pucks. Hopefully we can build off that. It'll be a lot of emotion. It's a great team coming in, obviously, and it's always fun to play Saturday night games. Big ones." -- Flames defenseman Mark Giordano
