"Since the first day of camp, it's been about being ourselves, we are just showing it now. Now it's just a question of team commitment, the leaders not only buying in to it but really leading the way in to it. But we are skating, we have a shooting mentality and we are tough to get through in the neutral zone, and that's been us, it just hasn't been us consistently. And over the past two games we have played a full 60 minutes of that and it's paying off.''
"They have chemistry. They had it all last year. They played against first lines most of the year last year, and we have it again this year. It's only (two games). We are not going to scream to the world that our team has changed, but the reality is that every piece of the puzzle that you put in that fits, you are advancing, and I felt we advanced. ... I think from last year there are certain things that we liked and want to see again, and certainly, a guy like Tyrell brings that and that whole line has clicked and they are clicking again. Just one guy can bring us closer to what we want to look like, and if one more guy looks like that, then we are that much closer. It has an incredible impact, especially in this league.''
MARTY ST. LOUIS:
"We feel comfortable in what we are trying to do right now. We tweaked a few things that fit right into our strengths and guys are feeling comfortable on the ice. There is not as much thinking and it takes the hesitation out of the play, and sometimes that hesitation just puts you a little step behind. And I thought in both games [this weekend] we were on top of that team and it showed in the results."
"It's going to be a tough one. These guys are playing great. They're 1st in the west and we need to realize that and obviously Detroit is always one of the best teams in the league. So we go to come in prepared but not change much. We got to go in and play the way did the past 2 games and hopefully we'll come out with a couple points here."
LET'S GO BOLTS!
