"It's a mountain climber attitude, don't look up (at the standings) and don't look down. You can't be afraid of heights if you are too high and can't be afraid of the height that's up there because it's discouraging. Stay away from it, that's the rock-climbing attitude."
MARTY ST. LOUIS:
"It's hard, but you have to train your brain to just worry about the one game. If you're constantly looking online or at the paper you'll get outside information you don't need. Just one game at a time. You can't worry about the standings now. Just worry about winning games and see where that takes you."
"We have a big mountain to climb to get into a playoff spot. It's a big challenge, but those are the challenges when you rise from within."
LET'S GO BOLTS!

We win if Garon manages to not out-sieve Vokoun. Just score early and take the wind outta their sails. Boston let them hang around and get a lead and lollygagged through the game and it bit them in the ass.
An avid reader, Boucher recently assigned his team some homework, asking them to read "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand, the story of Louis Zamperini, a World War II aviator who crashed into the Pacific Ocean and survived.
He knows they read it, too, because he quizzed them on it.
"It's about how someone survived something much worse than what the team is going through and he survived and learned from it," Boucher said. "I believe in that. To me, whether it's hockey or life, I think there is a way out; a way to build even in the tough times, and I believe this is what we're going through right now."
Hendricks couldn't even beat Rene Bourque. Erskine is really tough though, I'm a little surprised they called up Rechlicz. I guess Coach Hunter wanted to send a message.
And no, Downie wouldn't beat Rechlicz in a million years.
No doubt he would kick Downie's ass. If Downie deigned to drop the gloves with him. And I hope that's exactly what Boucher is telling him. Play your game, do your thing, and let the goon take the penalty if he won't let it go. We have seen Downie walk away from crap before and goad the other team into doing something stupid.
