As we all saw yesterday, Tyler Bozak was tweeting about the team's struggle to get out of New Jersey. I suppose he and the rest of the team can take solace in the fact that they're not the only people to ever be desperate to get out of New Jersey, but that doesn't help them rest up or prepare for the next game.
With a little luck, everyone will be safe, and this whole experience will bring the team a little closer together. Tomas Kaberle via Jonas Siegel on the situation:
"It was lots of fun [to begin with]," said Tomas Kaberle. "We got two points after the game, [but] as time went on the boys got a little bit tired and then it was kind of fun on the bus [again], joke around and everything else. But when you sit in the same spot for three hours, it’s not fun afterwards. You just want to go back to your room and get some sleep before the next day."
