From the Pens website today 3/21/11

Kris Letang

On how they refocus for today’s game:
I think we played well five-on-five (Sunday). We got undisciplined, it cost us the game. But I think overall, we were satisfied with our game five-on-five. You just have to forget about it, especially that we were up 2-1 and ended up losing 5-2. So you just regroup, talk about the other team and make sure you get ready for them.

On how the defense prepares for an offense that will be without Pavel Datysuk and Johan Franzen:
The same way. They have other powerful guys out there. (Henrik) Zetterberg, they have Bertuzzi, who’s having a great year. (Valtteri) Filppula, all those guys are still really dangerous. So we prepare the same way, you try to deny them scoring goals.

On their familiarity with each other over the past few years helping them prepare:
Obviously we know a lot about them from the two finals we played against them. They’re always really dangerous, especially with their back end. They can score goals.

On Niklas Kronwall saying that the two teams play a similar style of hockey:
We’re a little different. But obviously we want to manage the puck in the offensive zone. We try to keep the puck in there as long as we can like they do.
