“The way I was raised by Mr. Lamoriello (New Jersey Devils GM Lou) is you’re supposed to be in the playoffs, especially in cities like this one.

– Montreal Canadiens center and former New Jersey Devil Scott Gomez. The Canadiens clinched a playoff spot with a 2-1 overtime win against Chicago Tuesday night.
