BRYAN RUST
On Jake Guentzel:
“That kid is doing special things with the puck. He’s getting open. He’s putting pucks in the net. He’s banking pucks off of goalies now. … You try to be as loose as you can with the kid, try to make sure his nerves aren’t too bad. It seems like he’s doing pretty well for himself.”

MARC-ANDRE FLEURY
On an overtime save he made on Brandon Dubinsky with his helmet:
“Came down, then a rebound going that way, and I knew there was a lot of room there. I just tried to get over there as quickly as possible, tried to get something there. It got a piece of my head, so it was good.”

NICK BONINO
On playing after taking a puck to the face in the first period
“Right away, I just wanted to make sure it was nothing really bad. You look at the other side, Werenski came back too. He’s a tough guy. Things like that happen. You just hope it’s not a game-ending thing. If you can play, guys always want to play. It’s the playoffs.”

EVGENI MALKIN
On his controversial second-period goal:
“We (were a) little bit lucky. The defenseman have like an injury. He’s not playing. I hope he’s good. The first pass, I think I gave to (Rust) a little bit hard. He not see the puck. The second puck, I know he’s coming to net, so I try it a little bit easier.”

CAM ATKINSON
“I didn’t do much in the first two games, and I kind of let the team down. I needed to be way better. I had good energy in the first period. Got on the board, and I thought we were rolling. They’re a good team, obviously. They stick around and just wait for their opportunities to pounce, and they take advantage of it.”

BRANDON DUBINSKY
“We need to play a better 20 there in the second and more of a 60-minute game. Or else we leave it up to chance and overtime.”

NICK FOLIGNO
“Like a wounded animal, you’ve got to just fight for everything. You’ve got to play with absolutely nothing to lose, because we don’t. We have nothing to lose the rest of the way, which might be a good thing for our club, being young.”
