Here's what the Pens are saying about tonight's contest against the Sharks in San Jose…
ON MEMORIES OF WINNING THE CUP
Fehr: "You walk into this (locker) room and I remember the table and how wet the floor was. It brings back some memories. We talked about a few things that happened that night when we got here. But we need to get ready for hockey."
Crosby: "The first time stepping on the ice and first time stepping in the locker room that goes through your mind. Now you're doing your morning skate, getting ready for the game. It feels like a normal game day like other times here. It'll always be something that crosses your mind when you're here. But now that we're back in the routine it feels like it normally would."
Cole: "It's tough not to remember the good times that were had in this building. As much as you want to remember those looking forward to tonight is our main priority and being sure that we're ready to go against a team that's going to be hungry."
ON FACING THE SHARKS
Fehr: "This is as deep as you'll see a team in the league. I think it's a pretty good matchup for us. Obviously there is the history from last year. They have a skilled team top to bottom, including the goaltender. It's going to be a tough matchup."
Cole: "They're a team that's unique in the sense that they have big guys but they have a lot of skill too and speed. They're a team that can grind you out down low or burn you with skill on the rush."
Sullivan: "We know tonight is going to be a big test. This is a real good team that we're up against. We know they're going to play with a sense of urgency. We've got to make sure that we do the same."
ODDS AND ENDS
Sheary on playing: "It's looking positive. I've been practicing for a week, trying to get back into shape and getting my timing back."
Sheary on wearing the full-face shield: "It's different looking down at the puck because it's black. After my first couple of practices I got used to it. It's a little harder breathing but other than that, no issues."
Sullivan on goalie rotation: "We have a game plan like we always do where we pencil our goaltenders in. It's always subject to change. Ultimately performance will always be the dictator."
