"What I have an issue with is his foot hit (Cory) Schneider’s stick which opened up the middle. So there was contact after (the shot). Was it incidental contact? Or intentional? You have to ask the referees, they’re the ones making the call."
— Alain Vigneault on Patrick Kane’s shootout goal.
"It was interesting. It was such a fast-paced game. Trying to keep up. I think I was just a half step behind. I could tell there was a couple times where usually I’d be the guy, and (a Hawk) would get even with me. I wasn’t able to get that extra step.
"I think there was two at the end there. They just got to the puck. I guess that’s to be expected, not to have that extra jump. Hopefully, that comes."
— David Booth, playing in his first game of the season.
"I don’t know if we’re thinking too much about the record. It will be fun if it happens. It will be even better if it happens against Vancouver."
— Love this one from Patrick Kane who basically said matching a record was nice, but matching a record against the Canucks was amazing.
"Any time you have a down season, you want to come back and play even harder and prove that you are one of the elite players in the league."
— Kane, who is in the discussion of best players in the NHL a year after being among the most disappointing.
"What a lineup for @Bonnaroo 2013. Can’t wait to hit it up this summer with The Roo Crew.. @ScottieUpshall @JLupul@BizNasty2point0."
— From Shane O’Brien, who is already making his summer party plans. Of course he is. Even better, this hipster hoedown he’s planning to go to is scheduled right in the middle of the Stanley Cup finals.
