"I can't control what other people think," Nolan said, Wednesday. "Who wants to finish last? Nobody wants to finish last. I never went into anything my entire life wanting to finish last. You go into it with the right intentions, and it's the integrity of the game that's on the line."
"When you have an experienced team in front of an inexperienced goaltender, there's positions where you cover up for the mistakes," Nolan said. "They don't have to get shots from all over. It's one of those situations where it is what it is, and they're getting a lot of work."
