Ilya Kovalchuk Postgame:
“Zach has an empty-net breakaway and I was thinking he was going to put it in. But that says a lot about his leadership and that’s what we were talking about to get me the third one right before that. He said, ‘Even if I get an empty-net breakaway, I will spin and try to find you’ and he did, so it’s nice.”
Pete DeBoer Postgame:
“It’s a close-knit group. It’s a really unselfish group. There’s not a guy in that room that would shoot a puck in an empty net if he could pass it to somebody else. That’s kind of the mentality they have and it’s nice when you see that.”
