Game 5: Quotes of the night Add to ...

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Dustin Byfuglien, who had two goals and two assists: "I think Buff has been a big factor as we've gone along here in these playoffs. Maybe everybody said he was quiet. I still thought he had a presence early in the first two games here at home. Maybe the last couple didn't make as much noise. But I thought he was a factor like he's been probably in all the games in the last couple of rounds going into this round. I thought he made a big imprint in the outcome in the game tonight."

Byfuglien on his first goal and the lack of a celebration: "We haven't done anything yet. It wasn't a big thing to celebrate. It wasn't a real big goal. But we won a game, and we have to stay focused and get ready for another one."

Patrick Kane on Byfuglien moving off the line with he and Jonathan Toews: "Yeah, I think he got rid of us and started performing. That's all he needed. He was a force. He had some big hits. The one on Pronger, I think everyone remembers, where he threw him into the boards. Great game overall by him. It's good to see."

Flyers defenceman Chris Pronger on Byfuglien finally making an impact in the series: "I guess he's well rested."

Flyers winger Ville Leino on what went wrong: "I think we were ready. We were a little too ready. I think we were a little nervous. We weren't loose enough to make plays when we had and nobody wanted to puck -- we didn't make plays. We were just giving it to them. Just gave it back. We got to be smarter and work hard, and we have to want the puck."

Flyers coach Peter Laviolette on his team's play: "I guess if it was nerves, it was nerves. But we got outworked pretty good. We got out battled. They were quicker to loose pucks. Quicker on the forecheck. I thought we were okay. We survived probably the first six or seven minutes and they didn't score. I thought that was the worst of it. Then things settled down for quite some time. Then they capitalized on some opportunities."

Kane on the Cup and Game 6: "I think we got two days off here to kind of get ourselves ready for the challenge. It's exciting. We have one more win and you have the grand prize."

Laviolette, again: "It's one thing I've learned along the way about the playoffs is, one game is only one game. There's usually not a carry-over effect from game to game. You know, this is just one page of the story. Tonight it was their page. A couple of days off here, go back to our building where we have had a lot of success. We'll look to win a hockey game and force 7."

Pronger, again: "We have a couple of days to rally the troops. We have had a lot of tough losses in the playoffs thus far. We'll be all right."
