David Clarkson Postgame:
“Definitely, it’s nice,” Clarkson said. “It’s something I’ve never done in the NHL, but I’m not going to sit here and be happy and say, ‘I got 20 goals.’ I’ve got to continue to keep working hard and going to the net and doing the little thing.”

Pete DeBoer Postgame:
On Volchenkov “It’s hard not to smile when you see that guy. He lays his body on the line every night. It was great that he got the goal. It was fitting. I thought he was our best player outside of Hedberg in Philadelphia. If there was contact to be made, he was the first one there to make it.”
