Coach Noel met with the media prior to the game against the Islanders.
Coach Noel – Thoughts going into tonight’s game. Offence still a challenge? Living in the West easier on the team? Montoya going tonight. What would he like to see duplicated from Monday’s win? Expecting a more intense game? What Buff can do to the opposition. On the contribution by Olli Jokinen.
“I don’t care if you’re in the East, West or Japan. It doesn’t matter. There are no easy games in the NHL”.
