That's the good thing. My folks were down for three months up until playoffs started, so I can be thankful they weren't there and I wasn't there, sleeping at night. It could've been a lot worse.

I did a couple of interviews with you guys right after and I still didn't know. On the way to the training room, they pulled me into the coaches' room and let me know.

We're going to enjoy this for as long as we can.

It's a tough situation. One-third of the house is burned down. I lost a lot of my belongings, my clothes are all gone.

Right now we're struggling. We're not controlling the puck.

I don't think (it's too early to start thinking about the standings). It's a team we've got to beat and they're seven points ahead of us now. If they're going to keep playing the way they are, it will be very tough to catch them.

Although it's just one point we gained on them, it's better than none or losing one. Hopefully this a step in the right direction.

It went in very, very slowly ... it was slow motion. I'm pretty excited it went in.

We needed some confidence here and hopefully this is a step in the right direction and let's start putting a string of wins together.
