    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE

    On tonight’s game:
    “I had no issues with our game today. There are things every game that you want to do better but for the most part I liked a lot about our game today. I thought we controlled the play for most of the game and the
    only thing we needed to do was score at 5-on-5. We had a lot of chances, their goaltender was good but we didn’t finish on those opportunities so I think that is something we would want to do better of course but our penalty killing was good when it needed to be, our powerplay was outstanding. Lots of good
    things to take away from the game today.”
    MITCH MARNER
    On tonight’s game:

    “Five-on-five, I thought we did create some chances but we’d like to leave this game with a five-on-five goal at even strength. I thought we did a lot of good things, at the same time we talked about challenging the goalie and I think we could have done a better job even-strength wise but power play was working,
    puck moving fast, we had guys locked in and getting into spots quickly and we’re really pushing up pucks just getting to the net, having guys there and when we didn’t score getting the puck back quickly in our
    hands and getting another quick strike to the net.”
    On Jack Campbell’s game tonight:
    “He was great. He’s great most nights. He just takes a lot of pressure on himself like a lot of us do and blames himself for some of the stuff that he should never blame himself for. We’re very fortunate to have him in our net. He’s done a lot of great things this year and it’s always a lot of fun to be on the ice
    competing with him because he’s such a competitor.”
    Auston Matthews
    On tonight’s game
    :
    “I thought we were really good on special teams. I think we played pretty well … we created lots of chances, had really good opportunities, their goalie played well. All in all, I think it was a pretty solid game. Obviously, we would like to keep it in regulation but solid work by the group to get the extra point.”
    On his approach in the shootout:
    “I like to go in with a couple of options, a couple of things in my head. I try to just take what they give me.”
    John Tavares
    On tonight’s game:

    “I think the game as a whole we liked the way we played. I don’t think we really gave them a whole lot. Obviously special teams was huge tonight. I think for our power play though, we leave with a bitter taste in our mouth just giving up that goal. Things were working really well we had good pressure again trying
    to find another one and I think we were really in sync and in rhythm and reading really well off another and then obviously we give that one up. Even though I think we played well five-on-five throughout the
    whole game, obviously we leave it up to one chance and they end up finding a way to get one in the third. I know for us, we have to find a way to make sure we’re just detailed all the way through. Not taking our foot off the gas and understanding the circumstances of the game but overall obviously it was really
    strong, we had a huge impact on the game. We had plenty of chances, we hit a bunch of posts, we had some really good looks all three periods and in the overtime. I think a lot more better things to build upon.
    Obviously we want to clean up areas we think we can be better in but I think we made some good strides over the last couples days and had a good effort tonight. Good to get rewarded even though not typically
    how we wanted to finish it.”
    Jack Campbell
    On tonight’s game:
    “I thought the guys played great in front of me. We made it hard on Gibson, I thought he played really well and definitely happy we got two points.”
    On his 20th win of the season:
    “Just focus on getting better each day and the boys are playing great. Just a tribute to them and credit to them. We just want to keep rolling and keep getting wins.”

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:

Really tough game. End of the road trip like this, you can tell the guys were starting to feel it. What I really loved was the confidence in the third period after they scored, the voices on the bench, the energy on the bench was different then it had been all year. There was a lot of belief in the group to find our way back into it.

JOSEPH DUSZAK (GAME-WINNING GOAL)

On the game-winning goal:

Just a great play by (Seney). Skated the whole zone and then just turned up and I just happened to be wide open and luckily it went in the net.

On the team’s attitude through the game:

We have a really good group of guys that like to stick together, play together. Everyone throughout the lineup knew the game wasn’t over. Lately we’ve been slipping with those leads like in Wilkes-Barre, we lost that two-goal lead. I thought it was good for our confidence to come back and get the tie and the win. We were 2-2-1 going into this game so, it’s good to finish off the road trip above .500.

BRETT SENEY (1 GOAL, 2 ASSISTS)

On the team’s attitude through the game:

That was one thing last game, we had the lead going into the third and we squandered it. That was one thing that it didn’t matter what the score was, we just wanted to go out there and work hard and play every shift like it’s 0-0. We got down there, but we didn’t give up. Every line was doing it tonight. We were setting each other up. We gave ourselves a chance to win and we won.

On the end of the road trip:

It’s always good to go 3-2-1, always good to be above .500. It’s been a long road trip. The bus ride is a little shorter when you get a win to finish it. It’s definitely a good one for the guys.
