Quoted

Duncan Keith, CHI: ‘‘It’s not good enough to get the one point. We’ll take it, but we know we can start better. Whether it was nerves or I don’t know what, the start wasn’t good enough.’’ (Chicago Sun-Times)

David Backes, STL: “There’s plenty to play for, and whenever you get a rival team like Chicago, if you can spoil their postseason hopes, there’s plenty more to play for. In their building, they get a lot of support. We expect them to have a good game, and we need to match their intensity.” (STLtoday.com)
