They said it
"We're in a situation where we are on goalies four and five now, which is something I've never gone through before. But it's the reality and we're going to keep trying to get points and keep getting wins until we get [Marc-Andre Fleury] and [Malcolm Subban] back." -- Golden Knights forward David Perron on injuries to Vegas' top three goalies
"It's pretty special what they're doing right now. They have a very competitive group over there, which a lot of people forget at times. All these guys have played in the League for a while and they're all good players. It's cool to see how they got together and had such a good start." -- Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl on the Golden Knights
