They said it
"It's a tough league to win games. I don't read much into the divisions we're playing or anything like that, but we've got to come out here and get points. It seems like everyone behind us is getting them, and for us it doesn't matter how we get them, we just want to get them." -- Lightning coach Jon Cooper
"We're going to have patience with those young guys, but, hey, you've been in the league all year, you've got lots of reps under your belt, in important situations, in special teams situations. You've got to stand up and be counted now. Don't be in the league because you're young. Be in the league because you belong here." -- Ducks coach Dallas Eakins
