Kevin Westgarth Values Life on the Road

Earlier today I posted comments from Jack Johnson and Dustin Brown about trying to pick up two points in Pittsburgh tonight against a Penguins team that will be without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Kevin Westgarth, who will be back in the line-up tonight and probably will see plenty of action over the next few games, had the following comments to add to the topic…

“Clearly they’re a great team. Those two guys are special players. But, you look from top to bottom and they still have a great squad, with a majority of the other guys they won the Cup with still being there. So, they’re still a great team. Brownie nailed it, you can’t let off.”

He went on to provide a broader look at the overall importance of the next six games…

“This is such an important road trip. We knew all season that coming into February would be a good grind. But, you get on the road and you’re just with the boys the whole time. Sometimes getting away from your routine at home can help out. It’s definitely tough for everybody, but on the road all we have is each other. So, it’s a nice way to kinda reinforce the team mentality. Obviously, we have to get as many points out of these games as possible.”
