Morning Skate Update

by Staff Writer / Detroit Red Wings

 It's been an incredible series, it's been a lot of fun to be a part of.
It's been an emotional roller coaster, exactly what the playoffs are
all about.

- Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

“You don’t have many chances to play a Game 7 throughout the course of your career. We just have to embrace it, have fun, enjoy it. It’s a special atmosphere. We’re looking forward to it and play like we have been, play our system and we’ll have a good chance.”
-Henrik Zetterberg told Ansar Khan

“It just seems when our backs are against the wall that's when we play our best. The urgency was there from the drop of the puck (Friday). There can't be any let up.”
- Jimmy Howard told Ansar Khan

I’ve been fortunate to win some in Game 7 and lose some in Game 7. I’ve lost at home and won on the road. It's just a big game.
We’re excited.

- Mike Babcock told Khan
