Mike Babcock
"(Nyquist's) job, and no different tonight if I were him, he's still allowed to go back to the minors, is be so good tonight that you put so much pressure on the coach and the manger that they have to do something about it."
- Mike Babcock

"We all know that we're in need of a win here as a team and obviously we've lost a few in a row up here and at home as well.
So that's something we want to change tonight."
