Player postgame quotes

(Re game recap): “We know we can beat good teams. We were on and off here tonight and not as consistent as we wanted to be and they were kind of all over us in the third but Quick held us in it and Frolov gave us a timely goal. We needed that one bad and then that empty netter. We got the two points which we wanted but we can do better. We know we have to be better on the road trip especially in Montreal for the start of it. We know we got away with one here but sometimes it’s on the other end of the stick and its nice when it goes your way.”

(Re coming off break/road trip): “Getting five out of six points was huge and we have to play that kind of hockey. We have to be gritty and be a great checking team. And with this team here we know we can score goals when the time comes. That’s what we did on that road trip. We just have to play simple and smart road games and get some points out of it. It all comes from being smart and playing our system to a tee.”

(Re game recap): “Our goal scorers are going to have score goals for us to win. I think the big picture here is that we got goal scoring from elsewhere and it’s going to be key at this juncture of the season. They’re going to be focusing on the key guys and that’s when you get a goal from a guy that doesn’t score a lot and that’s going to be the difference maker in a lot of these games to come. ”

(Re key to the game): ” I think our start to the game was pretty good. We got a power-play goal and an even strength goal and we’re up 2-0. I think playing with a lead really helped us tonight.”

(Re playing against Chicago): “It’s always a challenge. They have a lot of young players on their team right now and their creating a lot of buzz and in a playoff spot which is where we need to be.”
