“Fil is a good player,” Zetterberg said. “He’s got a lot of good stuff in him, and over time I’ve gotten a chance to play with him more. He can play in a lot of situations, and he really makes good things happen and plays well. He’s a good fit for me and Cleary. Cleary’s probably one of the guys in the league that doesn’t get enough credit for the work that he does, and you know, it’s a good combination.”
Filppula said he enjoyed the move to the new line.
“Yeah, it wasn’t bad,” he said. “Obviously any guy on this team gets to play with good players, but it was fun to play with Hank and Cleary, but getting the win was the most important thing.
“I think we think a little bit alike, so that makes it easier to have an idea of where the other guys are. It was just one game though, so hopefully we can keep getting better too.”
