On recording a shot on goal in every game since Jan. 19th:

That's what the coach wants us to do...a lot of shots from the point because we have guys in front of the net. It's definitely a focus every night to create a little offence by getting the puck to the net.

On adding depth at the trade deadline:

It's exciting. I think the guys are excited to have the new faces around. I've only gotten to know them for about 24 hours but all good guys and good players and guys that are going to be able to contribute and help our team down the stretch and into the playoffs.

On bouncing back from Monday's loss to the Lightning:

For us, it's going to be an important stretch here and no matter whether you win or lose you can't get hung up on the last game. You have to be ready for the next one. We're excited for tonight. Colorado is going to be a good test for us.

On wearing the heritage jerseys tonight for Throwback Thursday:

They're cool jerseys and I think the fans like them. For us, it's something a little different so it's exciting. I think it's a cool jersey and we're into them.

On the upcoming 3-game homestand:

It's always nice to be at home and sleep in your own bed and things are familiar. That's obviously important and being in front of our home fans is always good. We're going to need them to be loud tonight and Saturday and Monday as well. It's a big stretch for us before we take off for a few games on the road.
