They said it
"It's a good test for us. We know the skill and the offensive prowess that this team possesses so it's a good test for us defensively to see if we can keep some of their top guys down. You have to know who's on the ice at all times because that team can make you pay for mistakes." -- Golden Knights defensemen Jon Merrill
"When you play guys that good you just try to get traffic on them. Usually if they see the puck, they're going to stop it. So, we've got to get some greasy ones. We need to get pucks to the net and see what happens." -- Lightning forward Brayden Point on facing Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury
