"Even before the division realignment was passed, if I were to have a choice between a Pens-Caps game or a Flyers-Caps game and a Panthers-Caps game, I would definitely choose to go to a game against the Penguins or against the Flyers," Hansen said. "I think we play well against those teams. I think we don't like them very much. There's an edge to those games that makes them a lot of fun."
"These are teams that we already hate in the regular season. These are the teams that we like to go to Verizon Center and yell at the top of our lungs. There's this animosity that we already have with these teams," Hansen said.
