SERIES SCHEDULE:





QUOTES TO NOTE:

I don’t think the group has lost confidence. In fact, I know we haven’t. It’s a resilient group.
The team has shown when its back is up against the wall that if we want to accomplish something, we’re able to do it.
I know we’re a good enough hockey team to beat these guys.
- Brandon Dubinsky


Every series are a little different. You can’t say the pressure is off because we have to win.
But knowing that if we win tomorrow, the Caps have a lot of pressure coming back to New York, so that’s exciting.
- Henrik Lundqvist


We’ll be ready to play, whatever they need to do to get inspiration, that’s fine, I just know we’ll be ready to play.
We’re preparing as if it’s our next game. My gut tells me we’ll be ready to play, I just have a really good feeling.
- John Tortorella
