Nick Vitucci Quotes

He was solid. When you only have three shots against you in one period, it can be hard on you mentally. I thought he gave us a chance to win. He stopped everything he should have stopped and he made a handful of good saves to keep us in the game.

We've got a good mix of young and old. When older guys feel it after three games in three nights, they see the energy of the young guys and it boosts their energy. It works the other way, too. The older guys help the young guys work through things.

I don't know if I can come up with enough intelligent words to describe Drew MacIntyre. The confidence he has instilled in the rest of the team is unbelievable. If there is a goalie outside the National Hockey League that is playing as well as him, I'd pay good money to see him.

Some people think these guys are just hockey players, rough and tough guys. But they also have lives and aspirations away from hockey. He is a perfect example of that.
