I was listening to (Detroit Red Wings coach) Mike Babcock the other night. He said it comes down to the team that shows the most determination that usually wins. I hope that he's right. That's all that we've got on our side when you match up the two teams.

Every game was a dog fight. That's a great hockey club over there. We just managed to capitalize on some of the bounces.

We were prepared to play a 7-game series. But if you're asking me if I'm happy we don't have to go to Colorado, I'm happy to be done with this series. That was a great team.

There is still a lot of work to be done, but this has been a very complete effort from the whole team. Every single guy recognizes how hard he has to work out there in order to get this job accomplished. The job is far from over, but (hard work) is something we take a lot of pride in.

Any time you can score goals against this team, it's a good time. They keep coming and coming. Every play is so crucial in this series.
