Ryan Miller didn’t like the NHL’s decision not to punish Mike Richards for his hit on Tim Connolly:
I’m pretty upset. Still upsetting. The guy who was complaining the most about how we were getting away with murder has delivered two of the dirtiest hits of the series. Blatant elbow to the face, which is something the league said they were going to try to take away, and driving Tim Connolly head first into the boards. It wasn’t just a hit, it was a push. It was blatant.
I don’t know, I don’t know where to go with this one, because, at the same time, it’s a tough game, its rough. You know Richards wants to win. It’s not lost on me that he’s a hard competitor, but I just think that was reckless. And it just kind of irked me how he’s talking about how we’re getting away with stuff, when – I mean both sides are getting away with pushing – I mean, it’s just more annoying than anything to hear that come out of a good player's mouth.
You’re annoying, Ryan.
Ville Leino was asked about Danny Briere’s second intermission speech today. He said he wasn’t listening. Heh.

Q: Do you recall what Danny said before the start of the third period?
“I don’t really listen that much always. I’m in my own little world out there, but I remember he was giving a speech out there. I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t really listen to it. I’m sure it was good.”
