Joel Quenneville, CHI: “[The Avalanche’s] special teams are a big part of their success here and they’ve got some quickness to their team game. They’ve got some guys with some skill.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
Joe Sacco, COL: “Good start to the year for us, but now we have to move ahead here. We don’t want to put it behind us — we want to reflect on the things that we did well, the positive things and carry them over here moving forward, but we have to look at our opponent Thursday night.” (nhl.com)
