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.

MARLIES 7, BELLEVILLE 6 (OT) “A lot of good things for a team to build confidence to find a way to get back into a game. Joseph Woll was unbelievable tonight. We kind of hung him out to dry early in the game, especially in the first period. He made some really good saves. It’s not like the goals were weak goals, we just were giving up too much. We finally found our game. Joe continued to battle for us and give us confidence to come back in it, and the offence came. The guys started to play the right way and do the things that needed to find those goals.” –GREG MOORE.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
A lot of good things for a team to build confidence to find a way to get back into a game. Joseph Woll was unbelievable tonight. We kind of hung him out to dry early in the game, especially in the first period. He made some really good saves. It’s not like the goals were weak goals, we just were giving up too much. We finally found our game. Joe continued to battle for us and give us confidence to come back in it, and the offence came. The guys started to play the right way and do the things that needed to find those goals.

On the first period timeout with Toronto down 4-0:
It didn’t feel like I needed to yell too much. I think they knew themselves that the effort wasn’t there. The execution of the game plan that we had followed the day before that brought us success was not being executed. So just a reminder of a few points of what we needed to do to get back to playing our game. And I could sense that they were all disappointed in how they started and they started to turn it on from there.

On Joseph Duszak, Mac Hollowell and Scott Pooley’s performance tonight:
Great. Any time you can get depth guys that come up in the organization have huge impacts for you in a game is great signs of the development process here within this organization. Really happy for their success tonight in helping our team.

On Adam Brooks’ tying goal and leaving in overtime due to injury:
Huge goal…Everybody loves him. You can tell that all his teammates are rooting for him every day. He’s such a good person. He brings a lot of positive life and energy in the room with everybody so it’s good to see everybody else’s reaction and how excited they were for him and that goal. In terms of injury, it’s too early for me to know or have gotten a report on what’s going on.

On what has led to Mason Marchment’s recent success:
Get to the net. He’s really good at net-front presence and just getting around the paint and being difficult and strong and big to play down there and plays with a little bit of an edge. He does a good job getting teams off their game so he gets to the net and guys are more focused on him than actually playing the game and it gives him more time and space to make plays.

GARRETT WILSON (1 ASSIST)

On what Toronto did differently in the final two periods:
We just played with a little more urgency. We knew we had to take a couple risks to get some offence going and it paid off for us and Woll made some huge saves for us back at the final line of defence there. We fed off it and we were able to get one on the power play. PK was great, so it was just a nice team win there.

On Egor Korshkov’s overtime goal:
Yeah, I think he only scores highlight reels. It’d be nice to see him get a garbage one here every once in a while and make us feel a little bit better. He’s a skilled player, big body, and he’s a hell of a player.

BELLEVILLE 7, MARLIES 4: “I’d say today’s the most frustrating loss we’ve had, not that they’re not all frustrating but I mean Agostino, Petan, Marchment, from power play to 5-on-5, those guys gained a lot of momentum for themselves and for the team, they had a huge impact on this game. I thought Duszak came in and had a really good game for us. Hollowell, Kivihalme – there were some good efforts today, some guys stepped up for the team. There were again moments of the game we controlled. At this point, it’s really frustrating, it’s difficult. We need to start seeing results.” –GREG MOORE.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On solid individual efforts despite loss:
I’d say today’s the most frustrating loss we’ve had, not that they’re not all frustrating but I mean Agostino, Petan, Marchment, from power play to 5-on-5, those guys gained a lot of momentum for themselves and for the team, they had a huge impact on this game. I thought Duszak came in and had a really good game for us. Hollowell, Kivihalme – there were some good efforts today, some guys stepped up for the team. There were again moments of the game we controlled. At this point, it’s really frustrating, it’s difficult. We need to start seeing results.

On quality chances increasing for Toronto as the game developed:
They did for us today. First period was a little slow. It was an even score after one. I knew we had better as a team and they came out and responded in the second period. I thought we out chanced them to 2-to-1 in that period and carried into the third then things just started to fall apart for us. There’s no excuses, we’ve got to start finding a way to get wins.

On whether this game is a learning experience or should be thrown away ahead of tomorrow’s game:
Every game’s a learning experience. Every game at some point we have to put behind us. We’ve got to chisel away at getting better. I do think if we look at our segment of games, last six, seven games, there has been better hockey played. We’ll continue to trend, we’ll continue to get better and we’ve got to find a way to go on a run.
