Quote Roundup: Pens-Canucks

by Sam Kasan @PensInsideScoop / Pittsburgh Penguins

Here's what the Penguins had to say prior to their contest against the Vancouver Canucks…

MIKE SULLIVAN

On Vancouver: "I have some familiarity with some of the players. I know they're playing extremely hard right now. They're a spirited group. They're a well-coached team and they're playing hard. That's a formula for success."

On Corrado: "Frankie has been a really competitive guy. He's been strong on puck battles. He's making sound decisions with the puck. He's playing within himself. He has a clear understanding of what our expectations are of him. What we've really liked about him since he's been in the lineup is his compete level. He's been strong on the puck battles and the battle areas in front of the net."

FRANK CORRADO

On facing the Canucks: "It's always cool to comeback to a place where you've spent some time. I enjoy it. The most important thing is for the team to win tonight. I'm just getting prepared for that."

On his play: "When I had (Sullivan) as an assistant (coach in Vancouver), I was a little younger, a little weaker. I tried to get stronger over the years and put some weight on. That's what I'm going for. Just trying to get better every day and every year is the goal."

On being in the NHL: "The last few years have been such an eye-opener to me. How tough it is to stay in the league. I'm super grateful for everyday I get in this league. That's my mindset everyday. Enjoy it, have fun."

SIDNEY CROSBY

On the recent success: "Just consistency with our game. Special teams have been pretty good for the most part. Just trying to maintain that high pace and work ethic you need to be successful every night. We finally got a point on a back-to-back night which was nice after some tough losses."

On Vancouver: "They're playing confident and they've got depth. They've got different guys contributing and some solid goaltending, too. They're a hungry team. With the last game of these trips you want to make sure you finish on a good note."

On his game: "I'd like to find a little more consistency. I've had some really good chances and haven't been able to finish. There's been other games where I feel like I need to do more and contribute more."
