    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE

    On tonight’s game and the team’s successful penalty kill:
    “…We had a lot of guys that were really good today, our team played really well. Our crowd was
    unbelievable tonight. I thought the crowd was the first star of the game, despite having a lot of guys that
    were good. I thought that they carried us through that five-minute kill. Our players played hard, they got
    life and we had some chances and the way that our crowd responded and then didn’t let up for the rest of
    the game from there. I always get asked questions down the stretch of the regular season about how
    important home ice was and I felt that it would be important, but I didn’t feel like it would be that important.
    It’s my first playoff game coaching the Leafs with a full building here and I certainly felt, and talking to
    some others who have been in the building and that have been through this, our crowd, you can feel the
    love for this team and the excitement for this team and I thought they were outstanding tonight and our
    team just didn’t look back.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On tonight’s game:
    “I thought we played fast. I thought we played through the contact, we played through a long five-minute
    penalty kill there. Our penalty kill was huge tonight, I think that brought us a lot of momentum. Soupy was
    incredible and we were able to capitalize on some chances so I thought it was a really good effort by us.
    A lot of really good things that we did tonight but it’s a series. It’s going to be a long series, it’s a really
    good team on the other end and they’re going to be ready next game. Have to watch this one, learn from
    it, obviously a really great win but we have to move on to the next one.”
    MITCH MARNER
    On tonight’s game:
    “Happy with the way we just performed. Didn’t let anything really bother us. Two big penalty kills right off
    the start but just from there I think the whole group settled in nicely. Felt like there wasn’t a whole lot
    going on five-on-five to be honest but other than that we played our game, we played with speed, we
    played with quickness and we got around the net.”
    JACK CAMPBELL
    On tonight’s win, earning a shutout:
    “I’m just really proud of the effort in front of me. Starting off the game with a couple huge kills and boys
    just played so hard. Obviously, they’re an amazing team over there, they aren’t going to be thrilled about
    the game one. But that’s what it is, it’s game one of the series and we really like the way we played but
    we have to refocus here.
