“You certainty want to try to stay in the moment as much as possible but you also don’t want to kind of down play this moment for our guys. They’ve earn this opportunity so I don’t want to sit up here and say well it’s just another game and we’re going to roll out there and no one believes that first of all and it’s discredit to these guys. They’ve earned the right to play a meaningful game in February. Now we have to prepare and have to have a great week of preparations. But they’ve earned that right.” said Holtmann
