HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On tonight’s game:
They just outcompeted us today. We just need to work harder in the d-zone. We were gliding around a little bit. We have a better effort. The group knows that. We’ll come tomorrow. I know the team will respond and match their intensity and doing a better job of setting up our o-zone and get pucks on the inside.
On tonight’s game:
It was frustrating. Especially in this league, special teams are so important. We needed to capitalize on that early 5-on-3 and that gave them some momentum and they capitalized on their chances. There’s no moral victories and I liked the way we fought back in the end, guys were sticking up for each other and getting in there. We showed passion that way but at the end of the day, the main thing is wins. So, we have to get after it tomorrow.
