- Dustin Byfuglien:  “Grew up as a defenceman and forward is not too out of my element. Whatever I can do to help the team”

Coach Noel post-game

- It was a tough game for us. We looked slow. Looked like they had the puck. We struggled to get it. We managed to stay in it.”

- (on inserting Buff as fwd): There was no cohesiveness whatsoever. It was hard to find guys that I could put out there.

- (on keeping Buff as fwd): Well we have got to win games. I will determine that later.

- We look like we are a fatigued group. We have played most games in the league and it looks like it is wearing on us.

- No update on Antropov. Said he hasn’t checked.
