POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On recent challenges with the penalty kill:

Just the wear and tear we’re putting our penalty kill through with how many penalties we’re taking in the last couple of games. Penalty kill has been strong all year but if we just keep taking minor infractions and keep putting ourselves in the position where the same guys have got to burn energy in that area of the game, we just put ourselves in a tough spot.

BOBBY McMANN (1 GOAL)

On facing a new opponent:

We felt them out a little bit too much and you never want to do that in this league. You know every team is going to come to play and every team is going to be ready, and we show when we have our good starts, that’s when we win hockey games. So unfortunately, we didn’t do that.
