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

    “Our power play wasn’t very good tonight. Had a chance to grab ahold of the game for us and failed to do so. Our execution offensively wasn’t really good enough either. Clearly didn’t make good on our chances, we generated more than enough to score far more than we did. But we didn’t execute and didn’t find ways to make it harder on their goaltender once he got in a groove.”
    JOHN TAVARES
    On tonight’s game and facing a strong goaltender:

    “Obviously I think we just have to find a way to capitalize on our chances and just make it a little bit more difficult around him and around the net but certainly we had our looks and our opportunities. Just one of
    those nights where you have to find a way to break through and unfortunately, we didn’t. We have to do a better job here of winning some third periods.”
    On his line during tonight’s game:
    “Yeah I think certainly much better tonight. I think we generated more. Much more connected. Better things to build off of and it’s a long season so try not to get hung up too much on a night where it doesn’t
    go so well and we still got a really good result at the end of the day so it was a good team effort with everyone contributing but certainly we want to be at a high level and be counted on and be consistent. So better today and still want to be a lot better and find ways to be more productive than we were.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On the team having a strong offensive game but facing a strong goaltender:
    “I think you just kind of stick to it and continue to fight, continue to push, continue to force that pressure and eventually break them. Obviously with the amount of shots and chances we had tonight sometimes you have to tip your hat. I thought we really controlled the play for the most part of the game, especially that second period. Sometimes you just run into a hot goalie and you have to tip your hat to him.”
    On if his goal tonight was meaningful to him, in setting a Maple Leafs franchise record for consecutive road games with a goal (9):
    “Yeah, I suppose. Like you said I would have obviously rather taken the win tonight but have to give credit to the guys out there with me on my line making plays and stuff. Obviously still leaving the rink a little bit sour in not getting those two points.”
    PETR MRÁZEK
    On drawing back into the lineup:

    “Yeah, I felt pretty good out there. I think early on I didn’t have many shots but I think I managed it pretty well.”
    On facing a strong goaltender:
    “That’s how it is sometimes, that’s how it is. You just have to stay focused and track the puck when they’re in our zone.”
    TIMOTHY LILJEGREN
    On drawing back into the lineup:

    “Yeah, it was fun. I think the first period I tried to get my legs back and made a couple mistakes I think but as the game went on, I think I played solid. Not my best game by any means but I think it was okay.”
    On having a strong offensive game but facing a strong goaltender:
    “Yeah, we just tried to talk about staying patient and sticking with it and eventually one will go in and obviously (Matthews) got one there early in the third just their goalie had an unbelievable night and it just
    wasn’t our night.”
