Mac Truck's Scouting Report on Bolts

“ It's a huge two points, not just because we are playing a top team in the standings, but because we need to put wins together. ”
- Ryan McDonagh
“ Their top six (forwards) compare favorably to any other group in the league. They have a good mix of veterans and young guys, and their chemistry level is really high. We have to play them hard-nosed. ”
- Ryan McDonagh
“ Everyone knows (Steven Stamkos) has that big one-time shot, which obviously is a huge asset, but the part that gets missed sometimes is how good he is at shooting in stride, and what a good skater he is. ”
- Ryan McDonagh
