As one of the older guys on the team, Patrik Elias will give his teammates advice about dealing with the emotions of being one win away from the Stanley Cup finals, writes Rich Chere of the Star Ledger.
Elias will address the team inside the locker room before Game 6.
Elias told Chere that because he was in this position before, he’ll give advice by telling the guys to just stay focused.
To be successful you have to focus and just try to keep your mindset and focus on one shift, five minutes, one period. Keep doing the same things.
Elias said, “That’s why we’re where we are right now, because we’ve been doing things the right way most of the time.”
Elias has apperaed in three Stanley Cup finals with the Devils, winning it twice.
