    POSTGAME QUOTES
    HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
    On tonight’s game:
    I thought the chances were still pretty even for the most part throughout the game. The game could have gone either way.
    In the D zone we just needed a couple more blocks and shot lanes and boxing out the net front, but given the
    circumstances of the day and the guys kind of being thrown in the blender for the most part with the lineup and the lines, I
    thought everyone did an excellent job of finding their way today.
    On tonight’s lineup:
    Obviously a very different lineup. A lot of different lines put together. As the first period went along, we started to do a lot
    of good things. With the shot totals at the end of the first you could tell that we found our legs and found some rhythm
    within ourselves and got some opportunities towards the net in the first.
    BOBBY McMANN (1 GOAL)
    On tonight’s game:
    It was a bit of a tough start for us. That’s something that we’re working on and we’ve been battling with that this year. We
    just felt like we were behind the eight-ball from the get-go there and if we would have had a better start, I think we would
    have had a different outcome that’s for sure because I just felt like we were skating behind it and chasing it a little bit off
    the start and that’s not a way you want to start the game.
