Post-game audio:

Bryan Little:  Thoughts on the game.  On his performance.  On the play of Eric Comrie.  On the way the Jets played on the road down the stretch.

Eric Comrie:  What was it like tonight?  Did getting some touches early help?  How long did it take to get settled?  What will be the biggest thing that stands out?  Did it feel any different than what he has been used to with the Moose?  Did he rely on his technical ability?  What was best piece of advice he got going into the game?

Jacob Trouba:  His thoughts on the way the Jets played.  On the play of Eric Comrie.

Coach Maurice:  On the play of Eric Comrie.  What did he like about the Jets resiliency?  When did he get a sense that Comrie was comfortable?  Thoughts on Jack Roslovic’s game.  The play of Jacob Trouba.  On Roslovic’s first shift (three seconds long).  On the six game win streak.
