They said it
"You know, we do lots of good things. The ability to maintain it and do it for 60 [minutes] has been something that we've done game in and game out, and that's what good teams do. You've got to mature and grow up as a group for that to happen. You just have to." -- Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock
"I put him on [the fourth] line because I think he has certainly some of what [Joakim Nordstrom] brings on that line, which is they're effective because they're hard to play against. Some of them are tenacious, some of them are on pucks, some of them are a bit of both." -- Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy on Anders Bjork
