“I had a sore throat and fever for two days. I feel better today. …
I’ll play.”
– Henrik Zetterberg

“It was not a good game. We want to play better today.”
– Henrik Zetterberg on season opener vs. Blues

“We know they're a good team…We're expecting a lot more competitive game out of ourselves.”
– Jimmy Howard

“Still cautious about (my groin) because it didn’t work out for the shorter break that I had in training camp…it’s a matter of a couple of days. I’ll start skating very soon.”
– Mikael Samuelsson

“I was actually hoping to play today… I felt fine skating but then the doctor explained if you fall…it’ll blow everything up in there. I’m aiming for Tuesday, we’ll see.”
– Ian White
