Here's what the Pens had to say about tonight's game against the San Jose Sharks…
ON STANLEY CUP REMATCH
Bonino: "We played six games against them, it was a good series and we know they're a good team. So we're just trying to get a win tonight …. Obviously there will be some emotions from last year when you play such an emotional series, so we gotta be ready."
Hagelin: "For us it's just another game. We're playing a really good team that got off to a good start. It's a good measuring stick for us. We have to come out with a lot more intensity than we did last game."
Schultz: "It's just another game for us. We have to worry about ourselves, start playing the game the right way and get back to where we were last year to get that far."
ODDS AND ENDS
Schultz on quarterbacking the power play: "It's a good opportunity for me. For me, just going out there and simplifying it, giving it to our skill guys and they'll make plays. When I can, get the puck to the net and hopefully get a greasy one."
Sullivan on Schultz at QB: "We really like Justin and his ability to distribute the puck up top on the power play. He has a real good shot. He can get the puck through and on net. He's not afraid to shoot it."
Pouliot on returning to the lineup: "I'm excited to get a chance. You never want to see somebody get injured and not be able to play. I'm excited to get out there and play."
Sullivan on Pens' identity: "Our team has a clear understanding of how we have to play. We just haven't done it consistently enough at this point. We've had stretches when we've been really good. Our challenge is to bring that element of consistency shift after shift. When we do that we're hard to play against."
