POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Toronto’s special teams:

Penalty kill has been great this year, (John Snowden) has done a great job with that area of our game and power play was strong today. Special teams did a really great job on both sides of it to give us a chance to win this game along with Källgren and playing really well around our net. Within this league and how hard it is to win, you definitely need to lean on your special teams to execute and we got that today.

On progress through the second half of the season:
Especially since this break, I think anybody coming off a break that they have been sitting so long, it took some time to get going, but we’re in that part of the season where the guys have started to figure out what works and what doesn’t work. They’re all starting to say the right things, leadership has done a great job of pushing the message of what’s needed from day to day, whether it’s in practice or in games. It’s a good sign when a group like this at this time of the year is starting to mature as quickly as they are. This isn’t leaking to the halfway point or further. We have high expectations that we keep growing and keep trending the way we are.

MAC HOLLOWELL (2 ASSISTS)

On today’s game:

A big focus in the second half of the season has just been our starts and trying to play more of a full 60 minutes right from the get-go and I think our start tonight was really good. Obviously, power play was clicking for us so that was huge but I just think overall our energy and commitment to just playing a team game, playing defensively is really good to see.

ANTTI SUOMELA (1 GOAL, 1 ASSIST)

On Erik Källgren:

He’s a great goalie. He gives us a chance to win every game and every day and that’s huge for us. It’s the same thing with Joseph Woll. We have really good goalies and we can trust them. I think we can still defend better so they don’t have to face 50 shots a game, but the goalies are huge for us.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Ryan Chyzowski’s performance:

Really happy for him. He’s one of those guys with an infectious personality. He’s always rooting and cheering on everyone regardless of his ice time or his opportunity. He’s the definition of a team player. So, it’s good to get him on the ice, get him some opportunities and he found some success early.

On Joseph Blandisi:

It’s been such a short window for us and our time with him, just his second game but you can tell the maturity he has and how he plays and how he manages situations. He’s a competitor, and you can tell he’s been a great addition.

JOSEPH BLANDISI (1 GOAL, 1 ASSIST)

On the locker room:
Everybody is really close in the dressing room. I know it’s a family type of atmosphere in there. The coaches are hanging out with the players and you can barely decipher who’s who because everybody gets a long really well. The training staff and everybody is looking out for us. I just think with the family atmosphere, everybody wants to go to battle for each other and that’s a good recipe for success.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:

In the first period, it felt like we got off to a much better start even then we did in the last game against them. We had a hard time getting to their net but I felt that for the most part, we were possessing the puck and controlling the game and things were in our favour. We definitely needed to find another level to find opportunities at the net and around the net. It was tight all the way down through and it was really good to see Abramov get a goal there. He’s a player who’s just been working so hard since the beginning of the year. He’s developed so much and added a lot to his game and rounding it out. In terms of the guys who hadn’t scored yet in this league, he had something like the highest expected goals for. He’s just been unlucky at times. It was good to see him finally get one. He deserves it.


On Erik Källgren’s performance:

It was great. He’s bailed us out of a lot of situations in this one contest, let alone past games. He should feel good about the work that he’s put in and not worry about (this game).

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
First, Joe Woll played phenomenal for us and gave us an opportunity to win this game. Heavily outshot in the first two periods and he shut the door. He looked very composed, in control the whole time. His ability to recover the pucks in and around the crease. In the third, we would found our game, we found our compete, our passion, our spirit for playing and doing the things that brought us success in wins prior to this Christmas break. The first period, there was compete there. I thought before the first TV timeout, it was good intention with how we were playing but then we started getting sloppy with our puck management, turning pucks over, made us spend a lot more time in our D zone. Their power play gave them a lot more momentum for them which kind of us put on our heels. Once we got through the second period and into the third, we finally found it and we found a way to find the back of the net. Good job by our guys to find a way.

FILIP KRÀL (2 ASSISTS)

On the challenge of returning after a long break:
It’s always challenging but we had a couple of good practices to get ready for the game. The first period was kind of hard to get used to it but after that, everyone was used to it and it was fine.

On the team’s third period:
We talked in the dressing room and talked through the first two periods and we didn’t play good. We knew we needed to be better. We just played our game in the last period.

On tonight’s game:

The first two periods, I don’t think we deserved to win but the third one was pretty good from us. We played good in the third. Obviously, it’s a good win for us to finish 2021 and be better in 2022.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the team’s structure:
They’re starting to buy into it. They’re starting to see how it works and much like most teams, you’ve got to rely on each other. All five guys on the ice have got to play their role and do their part to make sure that we’re protecting ourselves defensively but ultimately it helps us create more offence when we can get pucks back faster, transition quicker and use all five guys inside of that. What’s really been impressive with this group with the game in Laval with how challenging of a game that was and how much adversity we went through as a group, a lot of teams could have very easily just folded in, given up, started pointing the finger, brought negative energy or a poor me attitude coming into the weekend but we have a lot of good leadership, a lot of good guys in this room and for them to step up in these two games and have a response like we have in the way we played, it shows a lot of good signs with the group that we have.

On the key to consecutive wins:
The three games in four days, it’s not easy to play at this pace and in this league to sustain a high tempo and play as fast as we do in that many games in a short amount of time. Managing our shifts, managing our workload, being able to use our entire bench and trust everybody in all situations really helps us do that and that showed in these last two games.

On Alex Steeves’s contributions to the lineup:
He’s brought a lot to our team the last two games. Not only goal scoring obviously but all the little things that help win hockey games – his work ethic, competitiveness, his ability to make plays with the puck, game management items. He’s come in early here and led by example.

ALEX STEEVES (2 GOALS)

On the team’s success today:
Just playing the right way. Early on in the season, we weren’t always willing to create offence the right way. We have so much talent that when we put it behind them and let our offensive instincts take over, we’ve been rewarded with what we’ve been able to put up and how we’ve been able to defend.

On the team’s structure:

Our structure is all based off of being aggressive and wanting to get the puck back so, we can attack. You can’t attack and get the puck without playing an honest game and having a high F3 who’s working his butt off to get back. We have a lot to feel good about. We stayed disciplined, we stayed with the game plan and that’s why we won.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Alex Steeves’ AHL debut:
Great. He brought a ton of energy. We’ve been eager to see him in and he’s been chomping to get in the lineup and start playing with us. He has a really good shot, a really good scoring touch. His competitiveness and work ethic is some of the best we’ve seen. It’s been a little bit of a long road since his injury and the reason he can have such a big impact in the first game back is because of how much work he put in in his time off.

On the defence:
I thought all six of our D played really well tonight. They were smart with where they were positioning themselves around the rink, making sure we stayed above their speed and their guys that are trying to take off in behind us. Their puck play was simple, efficient and at the same time creative. D don’t have to be flashy. They just have to be really smart with their reads and we have really smart D who read the puck fast because of their skillset.

BRENNAN MENELL (GAME-WINNING GOAL)

On tonight’s game:
Commitment to structure. We got a little loose last game and also just having a better start. Going down early in the last game, we knew we had to change that. Staying out of the box too. I think we won the special teams game. That’s a huge component in why we won. We just knew that we had to have a bounce back game to get back in the win column.

ALEX STEEVES (1 ASSIST)

On his first game:
It was awesome. Admittedly, there were times where I was a little heavy of breath. Ultimately, I just wanted to help the team win today and am super excited we got a big win.

On the team’s win:
(Källgren) played really well in net which is always huge. There was a bigger commitment then I’ve seen most of the year of guys just willing to put it behind the defencemen and go get it, playing the right way to get offence and we were opportunistic at the right times.

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.

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 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 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 what was different in tonight’s loss versus the comeback win against Texas:
Our lack of compete right from the start. For how many points we need right now and what this week is and what we’ve been talking about and they know our playoff lives are on the line here, that first period wasn’t good enough and to think that we can turn it on late against a good team like this, the players should be really down on themselves.

On what kind of team the Marlies are when they have success:
Our team, we can play our possession style if we have the compete and we do at times and when our brains are turned on and we’re engaged and active in the game, we’re not shoulder-checking, we’re not identifying what the time and space is around us before we get the puck, it ends up playing too slow. They just think that they can take a game off all of sudden, just because they had two decent games they put together and they’ve got to find a way to want more than that for themselves within our brand and we’ve had success winning hockey games by all five guys on the ice being active and holding onto the puck and making plays with each other, it’s when we get individual.

On if it was tough leaving Joseph Woll in for the entire game:
It was tough. We were finding our way back in the game so it didn’t feel as though we got too far away from it. He’s a great goaltender, he deserves a lot better. I could hear guys after in the room not happy with themselves and know that our goalie deserves a lot better than what they gave him here tonight.
