Here’s a few quotes from Bruce Boudreau in between the “morning skate” and the practice for the guys who aren’t playing tonight:

On Alexnadre Giroux: “We are giving him a good look, and we’re giving him every opportunity. We are putting him with good players and it is up to him to the job.”


Should people read anything into Giroux and Gordon getting in all three games: “No, shouldn’t ready anything into that. With [Giroux] we want to take a good long look at him and with Andrew Gordon he just plays with so much energy and he can play anywhere and he competes real hard. It is not easy getting everybody you want in the games for the first three.”

Is Michael Nylander going to play in any of these games: “I don’t know. Potentially.” 

On what he needs to see from the forwards who are fighting for a spot: “I don’t know what I need to see, but I’ll know it when I see it.”
