    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
    On tonight’s win:

    “I thought we were elite on special teams. I thought we had a real potential advantage coming into the game tonight and it played out that way. The plan put forth by Spencer and Dean on both the power play and the penalty kill and then the execution of the players was high-level today, especially on the power play. It was fun to watch. So, that really set us up to win the hockey game. We made good on the chances that we got in around the net and there’s lots in the game that I didn’t like, and then I thought
    Seattle did a good job against us. I liked a lot about the third period, especially the last half of it. A good game to finish the road trip off the right way. Let’s go home.”
    MITCH MARNER
    On tonight’s win
    :
    “I thought we were good. Special teams obviously a big part of that win. I thought we got away from our game a little bit there in the second. Didn’t play how we wanted to, too many turnovers and stuff like that
    but I think that third period is how we want to finish out games. Be relentless on pucks, be on our toes, playing on the forecheck and not giving them a whole lot.”
    ALEXANDER KERFOOT
    On tonight’s win:
    “It’s great to end this road trip off with a win. Obviously, it didn’t go the way we wanted it to, but it was a great response coming here. You never want to come out empty handed so I thought we did the job tonight and we closed it out pretty well in third period in not giving them much.”
    JACK CAMPBELL
    On tonight’s win:

    “The team played a complete game. Seattle has a lot of speed. Fun to play them and see what they’ve got. Great building. I thought our guys came out and just played a great game.”
    On Marner’s assist on Kämpf’s shorthanded goal:
    “He’s a tough player to defend and thankfully I don’t have to worry about that, he’s on our team. Just an incredible player, incredible teammate and incredible play.
