John Tortorella noted yesterday that while game seven isn’t like every other game, it still holds one key quality that all of the other games do, “game seven isn’t just a game but we don’t change how we do things. We go about our business.”
On game seven, Derek Stepan said “it’s a fun atmosphere and fun to be apart of. You just try to get yourself focused and ready to compete.”
He added that “once the game starts it’s a hockey game” and that he won’t be thinking of the consequences during the game.
Brad Richards said yesterday, “Madison Square Garden, game seven on a Saturday night, where else would you rather be?”
Hunter on Gm7: “It’s gonna come down to who makes the hockey plays.” #Caps
