The Opponent is saying:

"I'm very excited. I responded as well as I had hoped. I'm feeling very good. It's good to be back. I feel really good, and I was happy with how it's been feeling the last couple days. And as is my custom, I'm going to take out all of my pent up energy on the Oilers with a three point night."
