“We're a team that was a good road team during the regular season. We've got to play and do it between the lines.
“Our guys have a belief in each other. This is tough. This is disappointing. We've got to circle the wagons and adjust where we need to adjust.
“Everybody on that team has gotten a lot of experience over the last two years. Everybody has played a lot of important games.”
