    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
    On tonight’s game:

    “Yeah I thought we obviously did have a very good start to the game. We’ve had a lot of really good starts to games here of late. Obviously, it’s been the finish that hasn’t gone well or the second half of games hasn’t gone well. Tonight maybe a fast start ended up working against us, I don’t know because I just
    thought we just played the game as though it was going to be really easy the rest of the way and paid for it.”
    On his concern regarding developing patterns over the past few weeks:
    “In the previous games, I thought it was different. Today I just thought we played soft and we made poor decisions defensively and we couldn’t sort anything out. I just thought it was far different. Each game has been different so it’s hard to talk about patterns other than the obvious in that we’ve been giving up leads but I just thought we got exposed today for being a team that was soft and purposeless and just playing the game and just hoping it was going to work out but we were missing important people tonight, on defence in particular so our team game had to be very solid and purposeful and try to make life easier for our defenceman and our goaltender and we didn’t do that nearly enough. Because of our good start we were in a position to get at least a point out of this game here tonight. We get two breakaways in the third
    period and if we score on either of those (John Tavares) has a really good look on a pass from below the goal-line, if those go in then in changes the result of the game but it doesn’t change how we play and how we played was not nearly good enough. I didn’t think we had anybody that played well tonight, coaches
    didn’t coach well tonight, so today is a much different game than we’ve played in the others where we’ve given up leads and such. I just didn’t think we had nearly enough urgency or purpose.”
    MITCH MARNER
    On tonight’s game:

    “I think our first was good. We were moving the puck, we were moving our feet, we weren’t being too pretty with it. I think in the second we took our foot off the gas and it’s becoming too much and it’s becoming something that we really need to stop doing and fix because this wasn’t something that we
    were doing at the start of the year and even before this whole break and everything kind of happened. Second periods we just have to make sure we are dialed in. We get these leads and then go into the second and think it’s just going to be an easy 40 minutes and everything is coming to bite us in the butt
    and we just have to make sure that we don’t lose the game plan that we come in with that makes us successful, that’s something that is kind of slipping on us right now and we have to make sure that we dial it back in and I’m sure we will dial that in.”
    On which circumstances have contributed to the team’s lapses during games:
    “I don’t know, it’s hard to kind of pinpoint that but it probably doesn’t help much really taking all that time off and playing in front of no fans. It’s just something that’s hard to pinpoint at the moment but like I said
    at the start of the year, even before the break, we were a team that never gave up and never stopped. I don’t think that we are doing but it’s something that I think we are getting away from is just playing the same way that we are in the first 20 and trying to start playing all this pretty game and trying to make too many plays and trying to take it back every time and setting things up and going up the ice. I think we just have to stick to our game plan of going quick up if we have the opportunity, getting pucks in and keeping away from their goalie and making sure our forecheck is on point. I think that’s something also got away from us tonight a little bit and when we’re forechecking well we’re getting pucks back and we’re making it
    hard on other teams.”
    RASMUS SANDIN
    On tonight’s game:

    “The game overall, we had a pretty good first period. I think we were moving the puck decently well. We came out of the period with a lead and we didn’t have a good second or third period, that’s happened a lot over the last couple games here and that’s something we need to clean up for sure. For me too, I think I
    was on for three goals that we let in so that’s obviously not good. I need to watch the game afterwards and clean some stuff up obviously, as every game, so I’m looking forward to the next one and try to look at things that I can clean up and move forward from it so just looking forward to next game.”
    On taking on a greater role in Jake Muzzin’s absence:
    “Well first off we miss (Muzzin) out there for sure. He’s a huge part of our team so we miss him for sure but at the same time, that’s when other guys need to step up and do stuff that maybe can fill in for missing a key player on our team but I’m looking forward to it for sure. I think me and (Timothy Liljegren)
    we know what we can do out there. Even if I play with him or with Dermott or anyone, we know what we are capable of doing. As I said, we’re just going to clean some stuff up from today and move forward from it and looking forward to next game.”
    MICHAEL BUNTING
    On tonight’s game:

    “I thought we were bringing our game early, we had a really good first period. We responded after their first goal pretty quick and got that two-goal lead back and then we just let them back in the game in the
    second and we didn’t bring it in the third. We have to bring a little bit more urgency. We’re a good team and we can’t be letting other teams come back into games like that. We believe in one another and we believe in our ability and we just kind of have to move on from this game.”
    On what Mitch Marner brings off the ice:
    “Yeah, Mitch is the kind of guy that is talking all the time. He’s always in the mix with everybody and he definitely brings a lot of energy into the locker room every single day. He’s a fun guy to be around off the
    ice and he’s a fun guy to play with on the ice. Exactly what he brings on the ice is exactly is pretty much the energy he brings off the ice.”
    JACK CAMPBELL
    On tonight’s game:

    “Just not good enough.”
    On what Mitch Marner brings off the ice:

    “He’s such a special part of our team. The way he plays out there, he’s buzzing around and creating so many chances and doing such a great job in the d-zone. He’s the same way off the ice where he’s getting all his teammates involved and he loves his teammates, loves asking how your day is going. He’s a special person and a special leader for our group and he means the world to us.”

    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE

    On Mikheyev’s play since his return from injury:
    “Well, he makes us a better team, there’s no question about that. That’s not just because he’s scored here, we’ve know that as long as Mickey’s been with us. He makes us a deeper team, he makes us a
    better team. I thought he had a great camp, a great preseason. He was taking advantage of any of the additional opportunities that we were giving him. It’s nice to see that continue here. Because he had such
    a good camp, we wanted to try to get him off to a good start here, try to pick up where he left off, so that’s why we’ve had him right away take the spot on the power play and get some minutes that way. I don’t
    think it could have worked out any better in terms of him getting the production here early to get him a boost after such a long layoff.”
    On the team’s effort after falling behind 2-1:
    “I was happy we found our way back there. Obviously, a huge goal for us there at the end of the first period. I didn’t like, obviously, that segment of the period there in the first. We got the lead then we had quite an edge in shots and territory and things like that, and I thought we got a little sloppy with our
    structure defensively and it just opened things up for them and all of a sudden it’s 2-1. We gave them life – that’s something we didn’t want to do at all tonight – we did that but I thought we handled it well from
    there so that was a good sign.”
    JOHN TAVARES
    On tonight win:
    ‘Yeah it was hard fought and you know they’re a desperate hockey team obviously looking to get back on track and competed hard, every 50-50 loose puck was a battle. They play a quick game. We got off to a decent start actually in the first and then I think they tied it up and seemed to get their game going and obviously we got a big goal to tie it up and kind of regroup and knew we needed to be a lot better. Overall, it still wasn’t our best but we’re kind of getting back in the swing of things coming off of the long break we
    had but did some better things tonight and thought it was a good hard fought game and we were able to find a way to get it done in the third period. It was great to see Mickey keep it rolling and seeing guys finish the job defensively. Soup was tremendous again and we just competed till the end and found a
    way.”
    WILLIAM NYLANDER
    On the play of Ilya Mikheyev since the return to play:

    “He’s been flying and the pucks are going in for him right now which is great. He’s had so many chances and for example last season but he’s got an unbelievable shot so he’s been capitalizing and flying out there.”
    On what it means for Mikheyev to get some powerplay time:
    “It’s huge, it gets your confidence up and feel for the puck. You obviously touch the puck a little bit more on the powerplay with a little bit more time and it helps a lot.”
    JACK CAMPBELL
    On facing the Oilers:
    “We knew they were going to come out and make a push early and they did, they scored a couple nice goals but our team has great resilience and we came back to tie it up after the first period. I thought it was a great battle, kind of playoff feel a little bit and we were able to sneak away with two big points.”
    On the team’s defensive play:
    “The guys did a great job. They have some super talented players over there and were making some plays but I thought our guys did a great job of adjusting and committing to the structure. We got a couple big goals at the other end and it was just a great win.

    OF NOTE…
  • At 11:11 of the second period, a video review was initiated to determine whether or not there was a

    Nylander’s skate and entered the net in a legal fashion. The call on the ice was overturned – Goal
    Toronto.
  • Per the NHL Situation Room, the decision was made in accordance with Rule 37.4 that states, in part,
    “a puck that deflects into the net off an attacking Player’s skate who does not use a ‘distinct kicking
    motion’ shall be ruled a GOAL. A puck that is directed into the net by an attacking Players’ skate shall
    also be ruled a GOAL, as long as no ‘distinct kicking motion’ is evident.”
  • Kirill Semyonov made his NHL debut during tonight’s game.
  • With his third period goal, Ondřej Kaše registered his 100th career NHL point (45G, 55A).

    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE

    Q: On tonight’s game:
    Sheldon Keefe: I just thought we did a really good job of defending our net today both coming into our
    zone and into the defensive zone. I really liked our special teams, penalty killing was outstanding. That
    gives us a lot of life and lot of chances obviously to keep it out of our net. If we keep the score down and
    keep the game manageable as offence was hard to come by. And then we get a goal and I don’t think we
    gave them very much after that, and the power play come through and we get a nice insurance goal so I
    just liked the intensity of our team played with defensively in a game we knew was going to be low event
    and hard to get much offence as a team in Philadelphia that hasn’t given up much throughout the season
    in terms of chances against and goals against so we needed to be able to be comfortable playing in a
    tight game. When we went into the third, we talked about being comfortable winning the game 1-0 if that’s
    what it was going to take and we thought that if we had that approach there would be some offence
    available to us. Textbook third period in a lot of ways. It was a clean win for our team.
    AUSTON MATTHEWS (TWO ASSISTS)
    Q: Good response game?
    Matthews: “…Really good response from us. Everybody down the lineup just really, really solid all
    throughout. Soupy was unbelievable for us, just like he’s been all year. Big kudos to him but I just thought
    our effort from puck drop was just really solid throughout the whole game.”
    Q: On William Nylander:
    Matthews: When he’s going, he’s going. When he’s skating and moving his feet, he’s dangerous all over
    the ice and he leads the play well obviously with his skills and his skating. He sees the ice well and he’s
    easy to play with. He’s been shooting the puck a little bit more and it’s obviously been going in so he’s
    obviously a huge part of this team so when he’s going it obviously makes it a lot easier on us.
    JACK CAMPBELL (36 SAVES)
    Q: Do you feel like you were able to bounce back from the other night?
    Campbell: “Certainly. You could tell right from the get-go that we had a serious purpose out there and
    just executed the whole night. To beat a team like Philly in their own building, and then you gotta win the
    net front, they have a lot of great players in front of the net and they weren’t able to get any tips out there
    and we were just doing such a great job in front.”
    Q: Did you feel like you were in the zone tonight?
    Campbell: “I felt like everybody was in the zone, top to bottom. Doesn’t matter who it was, everybody did
    their job and did it for 60 minutes. It’s great to see.
    WILLIAM NYLANDER (TWO GOALS)
    Q: Did you think your first goal was going to survive video review?
    Nylander: “I didn’t really know. I didn’t know if I kicked it or not but when I got to the bench they told me it
    was a goal so I was pretty confident that it would be a goal.”
    Q: Do you feel like you’re in a zone right now?
    Nylander: “Yeah, I think we’re buzzing as a line, creating a lot of chances, and the power play is starting
    to get really good.
