On game Assessment- “Some of the stuff we did, you had to give your head a shake.”
On power play- “These are the same players, pretty much, we had last year. I think what we are proving on the power play, there was a reason why we were last last year and it looks like, unless we, we change we’ve changed the dynamics of the power play, we’ve done some different things but we keep doing some of the same things we did last year…..at the end of the day we don’t make the greatest decision and we don’t execute, this is the same stuff we lamented before.”
More on power play – “At the end of the day, we all know and you guys know, it ended up costing us the game. We were 0/5. It cost us the game. Because it is a momentum killer. It’s like shooting yourself in the foot, over and over”.
Still more on power play – “….we have the players we have, we’ve got to find combinations, different combinations, we’ve gotta do different things, I don’t care if we have five defencemen on the ice, we have got to find a way to get it done.”
On Montoya – “He did his part, we didn’t do ours!”.
