LaBarbera quotes

On his performance: “It was solid. Obviously, it wasn’t enough to get the win, but what are you going to do? They got two bounces their way in the second, pucks just ended up on their sticks and they scored. It was one of those nights where the bounces didn’t go our way. We just got to rebound from it.”

On LeClaire: “He played well. He’s obviously having a good year. He’s got four shutouts already. He’s improved his game a lot the last couple of years. He did a good job of hitting his spots early and we just couldn’t score on him.”

On Columbus: “They did a good job of making us do things we didn’t want to do. We might have turned the puck over more times than we have the last couple weeks. They did a good job of getting pucks in on our forecheck and creating turnovers, and we didn’t do a good job of responding to it.”

On the streak ending: “Any kind of winning streak, you want to keep it going but we just got to keep plugging along. We can’t dwell on it too much. We have to get ready for San Jose. They are a division team and we have back-to-back with them. I’m not really worried about this game. We just have to learn from it and prepare for San Jose.”

On the attendance: “It was pretty quiet out there, definitely more so than the last couple games. It’s Halloween and a weekday game against Columbus, so not a lot of people want to watch that. But our true fans were out tonight and that’s the most important thing.”
