Claude Noel on getting back to work after a four day break: "(The break) should bring energy but just because you rest up and stuff, sometimes you get a little out of sorts in different areas. You don’t know how it’s going to go. To me, it’s get your legs and your emotional level in check. And your focus. Those are the areas that you really have got to watch." [Winnipeg Sun]

Alexander Burmistrov doesn't dig getting booed: "It does bother me, maybe makes me mad for five minutes. Maybe the first time when you read that it's OK, you know for yourself you're doing it for the team right now, different things. You just read it, put it in the past and try not to think about it." [Winnipeg Free Press]

Ondrej Pavelec talks about the Jets' final playoff drive: "It's always fun to be in the race and it's always fun to play in that atmosphere. But to be honest, I enjoy every game. If you want to be a goalie in this league, you have to learn how to handle the pressure and how to handle the games. You're not born with confidence, you build it." [Winnipeg Sun]
