They said it
"In every game you're going to need one or two pieces of your game to be above average to win on the road. You need a line to go and they were really, really good tonight." -- Jets coach Paul Maurice on Winnipeg's second line of Nikolaj Ehlers, Bryan Little and Patrik Laine, who combined for seven points in a 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday
"There's some things we want to clean up from Vegas last night. … We take a lot of pride in our structure away from the puck. We've got to get that back tonight because this is a skilled team that will make you look bad if you don't." -- Sharks coach Peter DeBoer on their 5-4 overtime loss against the Golden Knights on Friday
