That's the great thing about us, we push each other to get better. You know, we're so close to the point now where we know if one person's not playing very well the other two are getting mad so we push each other and I think that's great. We're brothers, we're family, and we've been like that for two years. Every day just gets one step further and I'm looking forward to continuing that." JON COOPER: "They are three, where their actions speak louder than words. They are three pretty quiet guys but their habits on the ice, how hard they work, the guys on the bench can do nothing but look at that and say 'ok these guys are having success at this, why can't we?' It filters through with the rest of the team and people want to follow so they are a great example of that (teamwork)." "The great thing about this is, a few years ago in the American league I didn't have anybody there who had played for me before. Now there will be guys who have played for me that know and trust what we're doing, that don't even blink an eye so you can surround yourself with that. And then we have a coaching staff where everybody's on the same page so it really helps. I'm not too worried about that. I think we have a great group of guys in there and they're doing everything we ask." BRETT CONNOLLY: "Obviously when you are doing things together, when you're more as a team, you play harder for the person beside you. For me last year we had that in the American league and it was probably the first team I've been with that we literally did everything together. I think that was a big part of why we were so good. We would have went through a wall for each other. I think for Coop he's trying to get that here and for the Tampa Bay Lightning I think that we have that. There's a lot of good guys in the room and a lot of guys are doing stuff together all the time. We've got to come together as a team." LET'S GO BOLTS!
