They said it
"We've got to build a base of confidence, but a base of confidence in a different type of game than we were playing in November, because the game is different now. We've got to adapt to the way games are played now. It's a critical time, to show that shift in mentality." -- Jets coach Paul Maurice
"The hard part is to get your head back in the game (after the Shane Doan ceremony). I don't know what's going to happen. Some guys use it as juice, some guys use it as inspiration. I hope our team takes it that way because we're playing a top team." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
