"After coming off a bad start (Wednesday) night we talked about having to be ready to play from the start and we did," Gaborik said. "We got up 1-0 quickly and that for sure helped us. I thought we controlled the game all 60 minutes."
"You get that feeling that you're getting close, but it's really hard," Gaborik said. "I'm really going to embrace this opportunity and take it, and I'm very excited for that. It doesn't come every year, and we feel we have a good team to do it."
