Deryk Engelland

Las Vegas, Nevada: Practice Day

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. When we hear Turk talk about how your team has to play to win all the time, it's a repetitive message. It was underscored last night with the way you played, would you agree?
DERYK ENGELLAND: Yeah, I thought our five-man forecheck, we kept it simple. Got pucks out at the blue, in at their blue. Got into our forecheck, everyone was involved.

Q. Your speed is a real weapon for your group. They have it, too. It looks like this could be a real back-and-forth affair.
DERYK ENGELLAND: Yeah, definitely. They got a lot of speed up front, a lot of skill. Their back end, as well. It's back and forth a lot of times. Usually it's best when you keep it simple, just get pucks deep.

Q. Is it fun to play in or a little bit nerve-wracking at times?
DERYK ENGELLAND: Oh, playoffs is always fun. A seven-game series, it's a battle. We're in one now.

Q. How big is it to really take advantage of home ice?
DERYK ENGELLAND: It's huge. We have a great atmosphere here at T-Mobile with all the fans. We got to feed off that.
