Quote Roundup: Pens @ Knights

Here's what the Pens had to say prior to their contest against Vegas…
Spoiler:
https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/quote-roundup-pens-knights/c-294011622

ON THE STARTING GOALTENDER
Sullivan: "Matt (Murray)."

ON FACING MARC-ANDRE FLEURY
Letang: "It's going to be an emotional night when we're facing him. Obviously Marc-Andre was a special guy, a special player for the Penguins. It's going to fun to see him. It would be better on our side."

Crosby: "When you shoot on a goalie for 12 years I think he gets to know your tendencies pretty good. I like to think I know a few things about him too."

Murray: "He was definitely the biggest mentor I've had in my pro career. I wish I had more time to study under him and be around him. Unfortunately, we're on different sides now. It'll be interesting. It'll be a bit surreal seeing him at the other end, and competing against him. It'll be a lot of fun as well."

Sullivan: "I don't think any of us are going to overthink it. He's obviously a really good goalie. He's an elite goaltender, has been for a long time in this league. He's a guy that our whole team is very familiar with, as he is with us as well. I don't know that there is any advantage on either side. It is what it is."

ON HORNQVIST-MALKIN-KESSEL LINE
Hornqvist: "We'll see how it is, but I feel comfortable playing the left. We have to get better and change the lineup a little bit. I'll go even harder at the net and create space for them. I don't want to have the puck. They should have the puck. We have to make sure we take it to the net, too. We can't just play on the outside."

Sullivan: "(Hornqvist) is a guy that goes to the net, goes to the battle areas. He plays a pretty simple game. Whoever that guy is that plays with 'Geno' and Phil, the coaches feel that we need more net traffic and net presence."

ON THE KNIGHTS
Crosby: "They all play the same way, every line. They all work really hard. They're committed to play as a team. They have guys contributing from different areas, defensemen, all four lines. They're a really confident group right now. They seem to have really good games here and feed off the crowd here. They're playing a team game and we better be prepared to make sure we do the same."

Sullivan: "I think they're a really good hockey team. They have a lot of good players. They're deep in the sense that there's not a significant drop off between the first line and the fourth line. They've got balance throughout their whole lineup. They're playing extremely hard right now. They're well coached. They're feeling pretty good about their team, as they should. We know it's going to be a big test. We have to make sure that we're ready for it."

ON VEGAS NIGHTLIFE
Sheahan: "More getting used to the time change. A couple of us went to different shows, Cirque shows. There's so much to do here. It's a fun city to be in. It's pretty cool to have a hockey team here."

Sullivan: "Some of our guys took in a show. Vegas is an exciting town and has a lot to offer. I'm sure that everybody that comes in tries to take advantage of any opportunity that they might have."


Twitter Feeds
@PensJG: #Pens Tom Kuhnhackl and Josh Archibald are still on the ice and Carl Hagelin and Ryan Reaves have both wrapped up skating. Appears 62 and 75 will be in vs. Vegas.
@Penguins: Coach Sullivan confirms that @mattmurray_30 will start for the Penguins tonight.
@Pensinsidescoop: Looks like an optional skate for the #Pens. No Crosby, Kessel, Letang. Injured players Kuhnhackl (upper) and Murray (lower) are on the ice -SK

Hate the **** NHL and Comcast for hijacking games for NHL Network which blacks them out on NHL TV. Again, if I need to get feeds questionably for what seems like 50% of the season that I am already paying for why should I even bother and just get all of them this way every season?

Weird that the Knights have ATT too as their regional sports network.

So clearly the team doesn’t actually care about Rutherford’s trade comments even though Sheary said they did.

Spend some time in their zone get little in the way of scoring chances.

Go the other way. Run around in circles. Get scored on.

Rinse and repeat.

Maybe they do but not in an "I'd like to stay here" sort of way.

Letang is the best penalty killer today in the NHL.

The digital signs behind the nets on the glass are brilliant but distracting. Wonder why more teams don’t have them?

So not only is Horny with Geno, which never works, but he’s on the Lw which also never works.

I like the guy but if he’s not with Sid he’s not doing anything on the ice and to some degree neither is Sheary. Need to try to find a less skilled Sid, someone who has the defense and drive and have them be the 3rs line.

Any centers fit that bill? Pageau between them could be really good.

They've been pretty good at spoiling shutouts for Fleury in the past.
