Players on both teams were not happy with the ice conditions for Game 1 at the Prudential Center in Newark Wednesday.
"The ice wasn't very good out there, so you never know if the puck is going to bounce or not," Jarret Stoll said. "It was pretty sloppy. We got a lot of snow buildup as the game went on. You saw some bouncing pucks out there, but it was the same for both teams. You've got to battle through it and find a way to make crisp passes and plays, and find a way to get pucks on net.'' While both teams are hoping for better conditions for Game 2 Saturday, don't expect it.
