POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Pavel Gogolev:
There’s been spurts in the game that he’s played where he’s showing a lot of skill. His ability and confidence with the puck to create offence. It was a pretty impressive goal he scored today. To come down the wing that fast with that kind of momentum and to go back short side. We’ve seen him do some things in practice after a few days when he started getting settled and comfortable, started to show himself and what he can do. Now we’re starting to see it every game a little bit more consistently.

On Joseph Woll:
He’s come a long ways since last year. He held us in this game. His ability to move laterally. He’s so explosive. He’s in such great shape. He’s starting to read plays more and anticipating them better and get to his spots and be set for those shots a little bit quicker. I can’t say enough about the type of person he is in his own right and his own leadership. Just very quiet, goes about his business. One of our hardest workers and guys really love playing for him.

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the response from his team:
It was really impressive seeing the team come together. Rich sticking up for the team in the first period. It brought a lot of energy, just setting a tone for the group and an expectation. Then the third period, it was just more of that and how hard guys competed and battled and found ways to come back in this game.

On Joseph Woll:
He was phenomenal tonight. He’s done a lot of good work this season. Sometimes he doesn’t get the results he deserves with some of our play in front of him. It’s game like that where you see how much he’s grown in a year and he should feel really good about that effort. He gave us a chance to win. You could tell it’s building a lot of confidence for him.

JOSEPH WOLL (57 SAVES)

On facing 60 shots:
It definitely makes it more fun. Being a goalie is a good mix of standing around and being in the action. It’s a lot more fun when you’re in the action. A little bit in the second, it felt a little long. Just a lot of shots but it was good. I’m pretty pumped that we won that one.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On today’s game:
We simply got outcompeted in the first 20 minutes. We found ourselves in the second and in the third. We competed better. We gave ourselves a chance to be in the game, but we didn’t come out with the tenacity we needed and the level of compete and just some of the decision-making. To give up two goals in the same power play in the first period, our power play units have got to do a much better job at taking responsibility to set up our team for positive momentum coming out of those power plays. To give up those goals is uncalled for and that put us behind. It is good to see that the team responded but we can’t have a first period like that.

On Veini Vehviläinen:
I’m sure he wasn’t happy with the first period and how that went. Hopefully he understands that we as a team in front of him didn’t play very well and the chances that we gave up were really challenging. It’s not like he let in any bad goals. What was really promising was just show solid and confident he looked even after the first period. He made some big saves in the second. Really hung in there and finished the game strong which shows to his character and how mentally tough he is. It could have been an easy first period for a goalie to lose himself.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Ian Scott:
Ian did a great job. If you take into consideration how long it’s been for him to get into a live action game like that against an opponent like that. You could tell in the first period he had some nervous energy and movement, but he settled right in, made some big saves. Then in the second period, he looked very comfortable. It’s incredible just how poised and calm he looks back there. Kind of mirrors his personality. For his first game, he should be really proud of that.

On today’s game:
The process was in place, the competitiveness was there, the consistency was there. To fight back in the second period the way we did to get the game even after being down, the team showed a lot of character. There was definitely a lot more consistency today.

IAN SCOTT

On his first start since returning from injury:
There’s not a lot of words. It’s been a long time and I was just happy to be out there again.

On how the game developed for him:
There were definitely a few nerves but at the end of the day, I can trust that I’ve prepared enough for this and that I’ve put in the work. A lot of work went on behind the scenes and after a while coming back, I was able just to roll with things.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On how the game turned after the first period:
The first period wasn’t a problem at all. I thought we had a good start. We were focused on our game plan. We spent quite a bit of time in the defensive zone. Coming out into the second period, I don’t know if the team felt a little comfortable with how the first period went. We started to get away from our details and our game plan a bit and they stepped up. They started working harder, they started finishing checks, they started making life hard on us taking away time and space and we didn’t answer quick enough and things got away from us too quickly there in the second.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On today’s game:
There were definitely some positive sequences in this game. The guys looked confident making plays. Really the guys away from the puck, to support the puck and to work to support the puck carrier was the key tonight.

On the Marlies defence:
It continues to build and get strong. We had a pretty young D-corp tonight that stepped up in a big way and logged a lot of minutes, did a lot of good things, continue to learn and grow. Tonight was a really good step in the right direction for a lot of those guys. The first period was a really strong effort by the entire team. Our forwards were really working back and tracking hard, making sure there were five at the line, five back in our return to D-zone. We found our way out of the D-zone effectively and much quicker than we had in some past games so it was good to see the team effort on that side of the puck.

On Semyon Der-Arguchintsev’s debut:
Really solid. He had a big impact on our power play goal, made a lot of good plays to the middle of the rink. He’s really smart, slippery skill, can find his teammates and elevates his teammates with his puck movements. That was a strong showing for him for his first game.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the team needing more urgency to start the game:
We lacked a bit of urgency to start. It’s now two starts in a row over the last two games where we’ve probably eased our way in. Hopefully the group can respond and come out with a little more urgency to start. Again, we needed to be resilient and find our way back into the game. It’s one of those games that’s really tough with all the special teams, the flow. There’s a lot of guys sitting there for long periods of time that aren’t necessarily on the power play. Difficult game but there’s definitely needing to be a stronger start for us.

On opportunities on the power play:
There was lots of great stuff. We felt as a staff that we generated a lot of good looks. Their goalie was really patient. He made a lot of good spots but it’s not as if we got through nine power plays and didn’t generate anything. There was definitely a lot of good things created. We were just trying to get them to not get frustrated and keep attacking. It’s one of those nights where we don’t generate as much as we’d like. Now we did get the one goal that was technically off our power play, the guy just came out of the box. We still had the advantage, it just doesn’t show up on the scoresheet. Overall the guys should feel good about the step they took on the power play tonight.

On Jeremy McKenna:
He’s been unbelievable. Team guy. The decisions he’s been making around the rink. His puck play and how smart he is. He’s a really good hockey play. You can tell on the bench. He’s rooting for his teammates. He’s bought in 100 per cent. It’s good to see him get rewarded tonight. I’m sure he will remember it. It’s exciting. I’m sure it’s the first of many.

JEREMY McKENNA (FIRST PROFESSIONAL GOAL)

On his first professional goal:
It felt so good. It’s been a long road to get here. I was just sitting on the bench, thinking of all the people who’ve helped you to get here. I’m so happy. It’s for my family and for everybody back in PEI. We were working it down low and just trying to get it to the net. Chipped it back in and it went in off the post. I was so happy and it’s a great feeling.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the home-and-home series against Laval:
They’ve both been very high. They’ve been physical contests. More tempers were flaring tonight. It’s really turning into a bit of a rivalry which is really good for us. What is a very different season not playing a lot of different opponents, this is good for our team to have some fire under them. have an opponent to compete against. The other teams in the league are really tough to beat but just in terms of that rivalry feeling, this is starting to feel like that these last two games. It’ll be interesting moving forward when we play them next. It’ll be a really tough game and every game to be like this really.

On the comeback in the third period:
In the second period, we really started working more, moving our feet. There were some guys working, some guys not. We got disconnected. If we don’t have all five guys together executing what we need them to execute with the effort, we’re not as competitive as we should be. In the second period, we started working. We didn’t give up as many chances as we did in the first. As we started moving and working, we started drawing more penalties and the momentum starts to build in our favour. Really happy with the group that they found their way after what was a struggling first and then going into the third, we just continued to build on that momentum. There were for sure some things we could have done better. We could have had a better start but a heck of a job for our group to find a way back into this game, to keep chipping away, to make a big push towards the end and find a way to get a point.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On why the team went 11-7 tonight:
We had a couple of young defencemen playing tonight in McCourt and Hoefenmayer. We wanted to give them some reps, they’ve been working really hard during their time here and give them some reps in what was a very important game and test them. They showed really well. We also had a lot of players up front that could log a lot of minutes and really the versatility of players that could play centre and wing, there was a lot of things creatively that I could do with the lines with that lineup.

On what makes it difficult to play against Laval:
Their forecheck really hard. There’s always pressure, there’s always some on top of you. You really got to get comfortable playing inside of contact offensively and defensively. They don’t turn pucks over. They make you earn every inch of ice, they make you go 200-feet every time. All the game management things in terms of  length of shift, knowing where you are in the period, what period it is, there’s a lot of items that you have to be really disciplined about against a team like this and our guys were willing to do that today.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On today’s game:
It wasn’t the result that we wanted but as a staff we were excited about the response our team had right from the start of the game. They stuck to the game plan, they were very diligent with wanting to execute it. The effort and the process were there, we’re proud of the guys tonight.

On how a week at home and practicing will help the team:
It’s going to be really big. It’s been a lot of games which was really good for the development of the guys to feel that grind, to push through, get a lot of game reps, they haven’t played games for a long time. It’s going to be nice to get some rest, get a week of practice and work on some things that will help our players move forward.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On how Stockton pulled away from Toronto in the middle of the game to take the win:
I thought they pulled away from us from the start. There really wasn’t a great effort from our group from the beginning of the game. Stockton came with a game plan, they executed their game plan. They came to work for each other. They moved their feet, they put pucks in behind our D the entire game. They wore us down. We were not willing to do the same. We came out flat. We thought our skill was going to beat them rather than our work ethic and didn’t even attempt to execute the game plan that we talked about before the game. In my mind, it’s two games in a row now, 5-on-5 especially, that we’ve been poor as a group. We haven’t bought into what we need to execute, especially when it comes to something as simple as competing. It hasn’t been there. It hasn’t been good enough.

On Nick Robertson’s absence from the lineup:
He had expressed an oblique injury. He was a game-time decision. He took warm-ups and we didn’t feel that he was ready to play so he’s day-to-day right now.
