It'll be strange to see Dru [Chris Drury] with a different jersey on. I think it makes the game interesting though. Look at our last game against Danny [Briere] and Marty [Biron]. I think we were tied in the standings or it was tight if we weren't tied. It's a similar situation here for both teams.
It's a big game for both of us and we both need the points.
He'll be on the other side and we'll know what to expect from him. We'll probably get to see him before the game or something like that, and have a little talk with him. It'll be nice to see him and get to play against him.
We know what areas he's good at. We know he's a well-rounded player, a good penalty killer and plays the power play. It definitely helps to see have a look at the guys before you play against them. Obviously for us, playing on the same team for a couple of years, we know exactly what to expect. We know he's going to battle for every inch and it should be the same way on our part.

Our work ethic has been a lot better in recent games. Hopefully, it will win us games sooner.
Looking back last year during the playoffs and the year before, Madison Square Garden is a great building to play in. I didn't realize how loud it could be and it can get pretty loud in there. It's a fun building for sure.
It always seems like the older buildings are always some of the loudest.
