"They’ve been on a roll," said defenseman Carl Gunnarsson, who took advantage of a marathon break that was so long he was able to spend four days home in his native Sweden. "They’re a good team. I feel we’ve got to win here. It would be a nice little start, a nice scalp if we take them. It’s going to be a nice start against one of the hardest teams in the league."
"If anything, it’s a better one to get the reality check going," wing T.J. Oshie said. "They’ve outplayed us so far this year in head-to-head competition. It will be a good one to start on, definitely."
"I think it’s a good start," agreed center Jori Lehtera. "Kind of get thrown in right away and get going."
We're just going to chalk up Gunnarson's choice of words to a culture difference, there.
