``We've had amazing third periods so far in the playoffs. It was a big trip for us. Now it's up to us to respond to this at home. We know this is far from over, but at the same time, we had a great two days here. Every shift, every night, we've looked hungry.'' - Mike Modano, who scored the go-ahead goal in Dallas' 5-2 victory over San Jose in Game 2 on Sunday.
