"It's easy to get frustrated when you feel like you played (better)," said Brooks Orpik, who won the Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009. "Whether you outplay a team for 55 minutes and you still have nothing to show for it, I think you've just got to just have belief in what you're doing that over the course of 60 minutes or over time that eventually you're going to get the result that you want."
"You saw the way they went through San Jose in the finals," Orpik said. "I don't think it mattered who they played last year. i think they were by far the best team. This year I think guys felt that we were the better team, so I think that's probably why it stings a little bit more."
