POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the team’s play at the end of the season:
It definitely feels good. There were stretches of the season where it felt a little bit on repeat in terms of answering some of the questions postgame with some of the inconsistencies and starts. A lot of that had to do with a lot of new bodies, people coming in midseason which kind of felt like the start of the year again where we had to work through some items and get everybody back on the same page which takes time, takes development, takes practice. It felt really special, really special these last five, six, seven games where everything just game together. We had a really good group of guys who bonded through an adverse season and found ways to win the games down the stretch.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
It was not the first period we were looking for. We haven’t had good starts against this team. I don’t know what has been the problem mentally for our guys to get excited to play against a team that typically is a bit of a rival for us with how many times we play them per year in the regular season, how close they are. We’ve had such good success the last four games, 60-minutes of playing a certain way. We got to it into the second period at some point but we shot ourselves in the foot a little bit early. It was a great effort for the guys to come back, find their way into managing the game and starting and setting up our O-zones better but we put ourselves in a tough spot early.

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
Hutch was great today. Maybe the best game I’ve seen him play in person. Really calm, really poised. He fought so hard to find pucks through traffic. Being able to get to rebounds and get to his feet and push. He was really impressive to watch today. The team as a whole, there was no panic. The last few games here, you can tell they have confidence that even when they weather the storm, they know what they need to get back on track. They know the formula. It just takes one big shift to turn it around and start adding to some sequences to tilt the ice back in our favour and they find a way to do that even after a little bit of a push from the opponent.

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On facing Laval:
There’s definitely times whenever you play Laval that you’re going to have to weather some type of storm. Just the way in which they play. I don’t think regardless of who the opponent is against them with how hard they forecheck and then they just get pucks to the point and get a lot of rubber on net, you have to break the cycle at some point. Our guys have done a really good job of managing the game. There’s been some five, six, seven minutes segments throughout the last three games where we haven’t had to spend any time in our D-zone and that’s just the guys being really smart with the puck managing the game, managing the ice. When you’re stuck in your D-zone and they’re shooting everything, tonight it was really impressive. Our forwards, their willingness to get in lanes, block shots. Our D were boxing out hard at the net, they were blocking shots too. Our forwards did a good job of collapsing out front, out numbering them defensively at the net and being able to get good exits.

On tonight’s game:
There was a lot of good stuff to take away. Full 60-minute effort and disciplined within our game plan. We’ve gone through a stretch of games prior to these last two where there’s just been a lot of growth for our group. We’re coming towards the tail end of the season with a lot of new faces, a lot of young bodies, learning what it is at this level to play. Finding their way and learning a lot of our systems and our details and our responsibilities. A lot of our guys that have been here all season have done a great job of helping guide them along the way. We’re now starting to turn a corner, the last game and this one. You can start to see everything’s coming together and the hard work these guys have been putting in, it’s starting to pay off and they’re learning what it takes to win in this league and especially against a really tough opponent.

ASSISTANT COACH A.J. MacLEAN

On today’s game:
The players played with incredible passion right from the drop of the puck. Especially through the first two periods of play, they played hard. A team like Laval just doesn’t go away ever. They had a real hard push in the third and even when we gave up one late there, the guys did a really good job of trying to defend hard, trying to block the shots. They came together as a team and any time we had any type of breakdown, Joe Woll was excellent.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
The first half of the game Laval came out like we expected. They’ve been consistent like that all year. Puck management, turnovers in the middle of the rink, turnovers at the blue line – the effort was there, we just didn’t manage playing a tough opponent. We kind of fueled their offence. Stuff we’ve talked a lot about. There’s still some common mistakes the group is fighting through but the real encouraging thing is the second half to be outshot as much as we were and not give up on the game and find a way to battle back. It was encouraging and should lead us into tomorrow’s contest.

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.
