They said it
"We're excited. Honestly, we haven't talked too much about it. We've done a good job of focusing on one game at a time, and now that it's here, it kind of came up quick. We're excited, but at the same time, we want to play good; both our teams need wins." -- Canucks defenseman Quinn Hughes
"It's the first time you get to play on an NHL rink against your brother, so it should be a lot of fun, but it's just another game. Obviously, a little more bragging rights involved, and it'll be more sweet if we won, but at the same time, we have to look at it like any other game." -- Devils center Jack Hughes
