PITTSBURGH, PA - MAY 1: Tanner Glass #15 of the Pittsburgh Penguins celebrates his second period goal against the New York Islanders in Game One of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2013 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Consol Energy Center on May 1, 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I was excited to find out that we had traded for him ... He's obviously been one of the best players in the league for more than a decade now. I was even more excited to find out that he was going to be sitting beside me. He's a regular guy. He's down to earth.
We're planning on being physical for every game ... It's just a matter of putting pucks in areas where we can be physical. Having a plan to be physical is fine, but unless you do things right ... there's no one to hit.
We have to make sure we don't just sit back and watch him ... But he's the best player in the world, so it's a big thing for us, obviously.More quotes »
