HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On today’s game:
We expect more from ourselves, that we can beat any team on any given night. The result is frustrating. It was a back-and-forth game. It’s starting to feel like the end of the season where points are on the line, playoff positions are on the line. Playoff hockey is starting to come and you could tell this was one of those games where every play was a big play.
On Alex Steeves not returning to the game:
We kept him off for precautionary reasons. No real diagnosis right now.
On Joseph Woll:
He looked really solid. He stabilized things back there for us at times. Really good game for him.
On today’s game:
It was a tight game. It’s just how the Bruins play and they play. They play a north-south game for the most part. They played a steady game where they didn’t give too much up. I thought it was a close game. There were a couple of errors we made at the end. You can call it fatigue, you can call it just mental errors but at the same time in tight checking games like that, we just have to understand as we continue to creep down into the playoffs that we have tighten things up defensively and I think that was relevant obviously in the third period.
