SC: It’s pretty easy [playing with Giroux]. I mean, that’s just the nature of competing and playing against one another. As soon as you put on that jersey, you’re on the same team and you’re all trying to accomplish the same thing. It’s pretty easy. We played World Championships last year and had a great experience there. He’s a great player, so, yeah, it’s fun to play with him.

CG: We enjoy the challenge of playing against each other but we also enjoy playing together, too. [Before playing at Worlds], we only knew each other on the ice, and didn’t like each other too much. But it made those games fun when you have a rivalry like that with a player. Obviously, off the ice he’s a great guy.
