"I kind of feel like the last 10 have been must-win for us," goaltender Eddie Lack said after making 26 saves. "I feel like we just keep battling here and we'll just see where we end up. Obviously, we're really excited about this stretch we are on, and it is so much more fun to play now when we have a chance and we're in it and battling."
"The boys came out flying," said Lack, who was in goal for the 3-1 win over Minnesota on Thursday but was out for nearly three months earlier this season under concussion protocols. "It's always nicer to work with a lead. For sure this is the best that I've felt this year. I'm seeing the puck well and working good. It was more like desperation last game, but this game I felt more comfortable."
