"It's a high-tempo game that you try to play with a good forecheck. Playing good defense usually gets you the puck back so you can head the other way," Kings goaltending coach Bill Ranford said. "If you watch the Devils in the playoffs, it's kind of the same for them. They play solid defense that creates their offensive opportunities."
"I haven't really experienced what it's like for him as a coach, but I know from a technical standpoint, he was a big part of the power play both in Boston and in Washington," Ranford said. "That's some real strong credentials that he'll bring to a power play for any team."
