Rob Blake

Sean O'Donnell

Joe Sakic

Scott Stevens


Q. Did you learn anything that might help you against the Devils tonight?

ROB BLAKE: I think the thing we learned that there is no way we can sit back. We are a team that's real aggressive, almost overaggressive and when we get the puck going and moving and skatin, that's when we are out our best. No way we can sit on a lead.

Q. Patrick Roy at the top of his game. We saw more evidence in the first period. Does the confidence of the team go up accordingly when you give him one goal?

ROB BLAKE: Definitely. You know he is back there. You know it's going to take a great play to beat him. If he sees it coming, he is going to stop it. He has been a wall back there for us.

Q. Suffice it to say, Sean, the pace has been turned up over Pittsburgh. Any cause for adjustments?

SEAN O'DONNELL: I know, coming out hard the first ten minutes, I think they had most of their chances. Now they got a powerplay which I think created some momentum for them. I think we played well the last five, six minutes of that period. Hopefully come out with more like that.

Q. You see another former L.A. King, your old captain Rob Blake across the way, does he become an adversary now? How easy is that to do?

SEAN O'DONNELL: Well, he is definitely an adversary. We have talked couple of times throughout the Playoffs. One of the things we said before we congratulated each other when they beat St. Louis and we beat Pittsburgh we said we will talk again, meet with a hands shake say good luck. If I get a chance I will hit him and he throws that big butt out at me.

JOE SAKIC: I just went down the side and made he made a perfect play. I just skated into it. I went down. I didn't mean to go 5 hole, but it ended up going 5 hole.

Q. Tough to imagine a better period for you guys. The Devils are really dominated the way you dominated them in the first.

JOE SAKIC: We had our jump out there for sure. We have just got keep building on that. A lot of hockey left and we have to make sure we use that momentum and carry it over to the next period, and keep doing the same things we have been doing.

Q. Scott, is this what you expected from Colorado, first time at home, a lot of energy, a lot of activity?

SCOTT STEVENS: They skated hard and came at us hard. But we weathered the storm. We have got to start skating a little bit more ourselves and be a little more aggressive at times.

Q. You made some changes during the period, different defensive pairings. Will that continue throughout the second period?

SCOTT STEVENS: I think we will keep the same pairings. It is just a matter of getting us out there at the right time. They are making short changes out there so it makes it a little more difficult to get the right matchups.
