It's not a big deal for me. I played college hockey at St. Mary's in Minnesota. We'd have bus trips that were 15, 16 hours long. It doesn't bother me, but for a 17-, 15-, 14-year-old kid, it might as well be to the moon and back.

Chris has really been the guy to ignite us lately. He makes the big save and it gets the guys going.

Being a 14-year-old kid, it's a shock to their system. It drains their batteries, and it takes them a few days to get back to it. They've got bus legs for three days.

Just anything that can build chemistry can help.
