DETROIT — Quotes after Game 6 of the Wings/Sharks series.
Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom, “The pressure has been on this whole team. We’ve been taking the one-game at-a-time approach since we were down 3-0 and that’s going to be our same approach for Game 7. We’ve just got to go out there and win one game. That’s it. That’s totally our approach. We can’t relax because every game has been so tight and so close. We’re not done yet. That’s going to be the same approach for Game 7.”
San Jose captain Joe Thornton was asked if his confidence was shaken, “Confidence shaken? Just ask Detroit, they lost three in a row and their confidence wasn’t frayed. We’re a confident group, still. You work 82 games to get home ice in these Game 7’s. Now we just have to make it work.”
Sharks goalie Antti Niemi if he takes any solace from Vancouver recovering from letting a 3-0 lead in the series slip away only to win Game 7 against Chicago.
“You never know what’s going to happen. The game’s at home and we’ve been better at home.”
