HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On Pavel Gogolev:
There’s been spurts in the game that he’s played where he’s showing a lot of skill. His ability and confidence with the puck to create offence. It was a pretty impressive goal he scored today. To come down the wing that fast with that kind of momentum and to go back short side. We’ve seen him do some things in practice after a few days when he started getting settled and comfortable, started to show himself and what he can do. Now we’re starting to see it every game a little bit more consistently.
On Joseph Woll:
He’s come a long ways since last year. He held us in this game. His ability to move laterally. He’s so explosive. He’s in such great shape. He’s starting to read plays more and anticipating them better and get to his spots and be set for those shots a little bit quicker. I can’t say enough about the type of person he is in his own right and his own leadership. Just very quiet, goes about his business. One of our hardest workers and guys really love playing for him.
