"I'm having trouble smiling, and I just can't stop smiling right now," said Daley, who took 20 stitches after a loss to Columbus on Wednesday. "We've been battling hard for a long time. It's just kind of like a little bit of a relief."
"Obviously the past never really leaves you, especially when you haven't gotten in and it's been an ongoing thing for the last five, six years now," said Daley, who scored the first goal against the Blues and assisted on Tyler Seguin's goal that made it 2-0. "Obviously, that was in the back of my mind."
