With the road trip coming up we want to be better. I think going on the road may be a good thing. We can get back to basics and prove to ourselves again that we are a good team.

We’ve been good at times but not on a consistent basis and that’s what we want to work on. Hopefully we can get off to a good start.

It’s fun to go on the road so the guys can be together, be able to hang out a little bit or go out for dinner. But the main thing right now though is winning hockey games and that is what we are worried about.

We have always been a good road team and hopefully we can start off well and bring back those good days.

Facing Carolina is a good challenge for us. They are a team that I think has improved a lot. They are up in the standings and they are playing really well right now, with a lot of speed and a lot of skill. They have been getting good goaltending as well and their special teams are good.

It’s always tough to go to Carolina. When you look back two years ago to how close we were to beating them in the conference finals, and they ended up winning.

That is probably the toughest place to go back to maybe in the entire league.
