"Obviously, you don't forget something like that," veteran Brian Rolston said of the embarrassing five-game loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. "We all have a memory. But this is a new team and a different approach. We certainly can be one of the best teams in the East, but we all know ultimately what's important. This team has been one of the best teams in the NHL for a considerable amount of time, but we've faltered when it counted."
"I'm excited to be back, because it's been tough watching this team when we're struggling like this," said Rolston, who last saw action Oct. 9. "We have to be able to put it together. We have enough veteran players in here to get out of this. Sure, there's frustration and no one wants to be in this position. No one thought we would be where we are now. But we can get out of this as a team."
