"It was a weird injury, and you don't see it often. The odds of getting hit there again are pretty long, but it's a matter of getting my head clear and focus on my game and not be scared to get hurt again," Dallas Stars forward Mike Ribeiro, who underwent an emergency tracheotomy after he had a stick jammed in his throat during a game against the New York Rangers on Jan. 6.

"We've lost a few in a row, so it's getting past that block, over that wall and it was right there for us tonight," Calgary Flames head coach Brent Sutter, after his team's eighth consecutive defeat, a shootout loss to the Dallas Stars, in which it blew a two-goal lead. The second, and tying, goal came with Calgary two men short, after Rene Bourque was assessed a rare penalty for playing with a broken stick.

"It's a different world out there. At times, I don't think they care," Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Ron Wilson, after both Jamal Mayers and Garnet Exelby, two bit players on one of the NHL's worst teams, suggest they'd be happier if moved elsewhere.
