Foligno: There\'s No Place Like Home

It's great to finally be at home again after such a long stretch of road games and I think I can say all the guys are happy to be back. We were proud of ourselves with the way we played on the road, and we really made that push to have a good trip. We knew how crucial those points would be and how much they can help us later on. The guys really stepped up and played well on the road over the past few weeks, and now we've got to make sure we make the best of this upcoming homestand as well.

When you're away that long, it can affect your normal routine, but it's just something you have to get used to, and you do. It's part of our job to find a way to make sure we're at our best and always look at the positives of everything. It is always difficult on a road and it's a little bit different. But I think the guys are looking forward to being at home and getting some R and R and making sure we're ready for these home games because they're really important for us.

I've been happy with game lately. It's about confidence and understanding the kind of player I need to be. It just comes with maturity and I'm pretty comfortable with the guys I've been playing with lately. I'm pretty fortunate to have such great linemates (Daniel Alfredsson and Milan Michalek) and we've been able to click and produce, so that's been good. I'm enjoying it and while it's been a little bit different being at centre, I'm liking that as well. The coaching staff has also been outstanding with us, too. You're seeing all the guys step up and play well, and it's a testament to them that they've been able to get the best out of us.

I want to be a big player on this team and I've said that before. It's just a matter of me going out there and continuing to play the way I know I can, and making sure I'm always working hard and working on both sides of the puck. When you play with such great players, you're bound to have some good nights. I've just got to continue to work and continue to have a lot of fun. I think that's the biggest thing this year. I'm really enjoying myself and I think all the guys feel the same way.

Ask anyone on the team, and they'll tell you the coaches have made it such a great environment for everyone and we see such potential in this room. There's such a great group of guys in here and we're really having fun together. We're having fun coming to the rink and working hard to get better as a team. Any time you've have that mixture of things going on, it can only be great for your organization.
