“Maybe a bit antsy at times, a little anxious, we feel like we have to be the aggressor maybe,” Vancouver defenseman Kevin Bieksa said. “I don’t know what it is to tell you the truth, but the game we played on the road and won both (Games 1 and 5) was very similar. So we’ll try to do that.”

“You never know what’s going to happen so you pack as if you’re going to win and that’s what we expect to do,” Chicago forward Kris Versteeg said. “We expect to win. That’s that.”

“We put ourselves in this situation,” forward Patrick Kane said. “We want to win, obviously, in Game 6 and not give ourselves a chance to go to Game 7.”

“Sami is one of our most dependable two-way defensemen,” Vigneault said. “He plays 5-on-5, power play, penalty killing and he’s got a great shot.”

“Instead of making that extra pass, get that extra shot on net and maybe crash it and try to get rebounds, especially on Luongo,” Kane said. “The biggest thing is to get shots and traffic.”
