With the Bruins' 3-1 victory in Game 5 in the books and Game 6 slated for Tampa Bay Wednesday, here is a thought from each locker room on what the respective teams need to do to win the next one on the schedule:

Lightning forward Steve Stamkos, on facing elimination: "Well, we're down 3-2, so we're one better than we were in the Pittsburgh series when we were down 3-1. We have a great opportunity here. Obviously, it would have been great to win tonight heading back home, but we'll try to use our great fans as motivation and momentum to win Game 6."

Bruins forward Milan Lucic, on trying to close out the series: "Nothing should change from our attitude. And the last two series and what we needed to do to get that fourth win. And they are going to fight for their lives and they are going to come out as determined as possible. Their backs are against the wall, but we know what we have to do."
