'"You've said if you weren't a hockey player, you'd be a chef. So name three signature dishes of yours, and three teammates that could use a good cooking lesson."
Tallinder: "I love Buffalo wings now. When I came over here I just love it. I have a couple other dishes. Probably steak, surf and turf… crazy about that. Three guys that need cooking lessons would probably be Al Kotalik, Toni Lydman, and Mika Noronen."'

‘”I was just happy to get a hold of those and keep the lead,” said Miller, who faced just three shots in the opening period but turned aside 18 over the final two sessions. “You’re going to have to play. You’re not going to hide out there and get three shots a period all night. That’s the approach I’m trying to take.”‘
‘”We talked before the game that we should have a better start than we have had,” Tallinder said. “Today I think we did that. Tampa played three games in four nights, that was part of it. The most important thing was we were ready to play off the face off.”‘
