Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog: We're not done!

The Colorado Avalanche will play in the Stanley Cup final. Colorado coach Jared Bednar stressed that the goal is to win the cup and that they are not happy just playing in the finals. "We have one step left, and I don't feel like any of our guys are satisfied," he said, as quote by NHL.com "Advancing has been great, but it hasn't been our goal from the start.

Winning the whole thing has been, and our guys are focused on that and seem like they're determined." The 6: 5 victory in the last match and the goal in the extra time speaks of the strength of this team. It just shows our resiliency in that room," Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said.

"Obviously you put in a lot of work to get better as a team, but also to prepare yourself for situations like this. So, that's why it's important throughout the year that you don't take any nights off. "I think the bottom line is, when you have a chance to put a team out and to eliminate them, that's what you want to do.

It's never easy getting that fourth one, as we saw in Nashville (5-3 win on May 9) and as we saw last night. It's never an easy task, but the guys stayed focused and we were able to get it done and it feels good."

Their goals

However, they do not want to create too much euphoria with this victory and now they want to take it one step further and reach victory in the final! "It's important to enjoy the journey and important to enjoy the moment," Landeskog said.

Obviously, [we're] keeping our focus on the main goal. We all know what that is. I'm proud of the group and proud of what we've done so far, but we're not done. I think you flip the switch pretty quickly. "Once we show up to practice, we've got to put some work in and keep our intensity up and fine-tune some things. Before we know our opponent, we still got work to do."
