We're going to have to match their work ethic . . . we're going to have to leave it out there. It's just one game. You just focus on the next game."

"We can't be scared of losing," Vegas' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury told NHL.com. "I think we've got to go out there and play hard and attack. Be on our toes and go create some good stuff."
