"I don't think it'd be right if we didn't play them in the playoffs," Holtby said. "If you watched them in the regular season, you'd expect to have to go through them at some point to get to the Stanley Cup Final. It's going to be a great series. We're excited for the challenge."
"I've never really seen a play like that that isn't blown down," Holtby said. "We're playing two-on-two hockey, and their guy got out of the scrum first. You know, it's one where I'd hope we'd keep our composure a little better and not double-coverage a situation like that. You don't plan for that stuff, but it's tough to swallow, and it happens."
