“Essentially, it’s all up to us. If we win the rest of our games,
we’re going to be in. It’s up to us.”
- Jonathan Ericsson


“We just have to play hard… just play hard because we are in a race, they are in a race. They are going to come out of the gate hard and they will play hard and play like it’s a playoff game too. It’s going to be a very exciting match.”
- Jakub Kindl

“It’s exciting times and everyone is huge, obviously. It’s fun hockey to play, it’s playoff hockey and it’s tight out there. Everyone knows what’s at stake and we want to be prepared, for sure.”
- Gustav Nyquist


“It feels like it’s the playoffs right now. That’s the type of urgency it feels like. You have to win every game to stay in. That’s how it is for us right now. If we don’t win, we’re not going to be in.”
- Jonathan Ericsson

“We all know the position we’re in and obviously as a hockey player you want to be in a position where you control your own destiny”
- Justin Abdelkader


“We have games in hand on all of them…We just have to play well on our home ice and take care of business.”
- Justin Abdelkader

“We still have to do the job out there. Sure we’re somewhat in an
OK spot right now, but every point is huge. We have to find a way through it.”
- Niklas Kronwall
