Q. What about communication, when you come in and all this stuff is thrown at you -- all of a sudden you're thrown in with a bunch of guys -- a bunch of guys that you've never played with it?
KEITH TKACHUK: I was asked to go out and have fun. It doesn't matter, really. It's just for the fans. You just want to win. There's a lot of pride going on. It's just great.
Q. It might be something like you play at one of the local places when you grow up?
KEITH TKACHUK: Yeah, this is the best experience in the world.
Q. Okay, thanks, Keith. What did you think of Nick's play tonight?
KEITH TKACHUK: Nick's solid. He shutout a lot.
Q. He gave up one.
KEITH TKACHUK: Did he?
KEITH TKACHUK: He's awesome.
Q. Was there a sign when you were lining up that one shot, was there a thought, hey that's my goalie?
KEITH TKACHUK: No, I was thinking, hey, I want to beat him. That's what I was thinking. He's solid. He did a good job tonight.
