POSTGAME QUOTES
HEAD COACH GREG MOORE
On tonight’s game:
This is a tough building to come in in the first period, sold out crowd. This team plays very heavy. I thought our team did a really good job being prepared and ready for that. Once we go through that energy and that push by Laval, we got stronger, we got better. A couple of big kills by our penalty kill, they were really important in the win today. Hutchy making some big saves. We’ve been chasing a 60-minute game all year, I think this was as close to it as we’ve had.

On Rich Clune and his game-winning goal:
It’s electric. Cluner does a lot for our group and when he can add offensively like that, it’s a big lift. The boys get really vibrant on the bench and excited for him. He does so much for us in other areas.

On Filip Král leaving the game in the first period:
Kind of a weird play. It was a great play by him. A good hit on the entry against, put the guy into the glass and got a stall. Things we definitely ask our D to do. Just unfortunate how the skate, probably of the opponent, grazed him on the inside of the leg. A leg laceration so just for precautionary reasons, we made sure we kept him out, not knowing how deep it was or what was the damage.

JOEY ANDERSON (1 GOAL, 1 ASSIST)

On tonight’s game:
This was one of our most complete games. It was a must-win for us. There are no excuses. It has to be that way and it’s got to be that way the rest of the year.

On the penalty kill:
Just like the rest of the game, we were winning battles. A lot of the inconsistencies with our team this year have been competing and battles and structure. Tonight, we battled the whole time. Even when things weren’t perfect, we competed, blocked shots, didn’t panic when things broke down. Those are the things we need to do if we want to do anything come into the springtime, we’ve got to have that effort every night.

RICH CLUNE (GAME-WINNING GOAL)

On tonight’s game:
Based on our penalty kills, that was probably the difference of us being down a few goals early. You could really see the character and the courage and what we know we have in that room, we have a tight-knit group who will do things for each other and it came out there with the blocks and the clears and the saves. That’s what gave us momentum to get going in that game

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On the final Laval goal:

Coming back in the d-zone, we just need a better sorts and structure. In chaos moments like that, the energy or feel of the game is heightened. The experience and maturity of staying calm, seeing the game clearly, knowing our responsibilities. We just needed a better job of coming back and finding our spots there.

On Alex Steeves:

He’s done a great job (adjusting to professional hockey). Sometimes it’s not easy to be a first-year pro, especially from college when you’re playing two games on the weekends. He’s feeling the length of a pro season, the amount of games that we play. We have a big month coming up with a lot of games. Just the day-to-day management of your routine, your habits and taking care of your body, the recovery process. He’s handled it well, not just himself but a lot of our guys. Through January we had a big stretch of games, whether it was the COVID break or different things happening, we got through that tough stretch and now we’re in a little bit of a better place.

On Joseph Woll’s first game returning from injury:

Good. It was a tough one. They did a really good job at setting up the o-zone and just relying on point shots. It’s never easy for a goalie. I think most coaches in the game of hockey say get to the eyes of the goalie and be the screen. They made it really hard on us today, but he fought through a lot and made some good saves.

ALEX STEEVES (1 GOAL, 2 ASSISTS)

On Laval’s final goal:

We just got the shot blocked as we’re trying to get pucks to the net. Before the timeout, we got a really good look, a look that we wanted and the goalie made a really nice save and that’s kind of how it goes. The goalie makes a big save at a big time and we weren’t able to tie it up, so definitely frustrated but we had some good looks at the end. It’s tough being on the power play with the net empty. It’s kind of a high risk, high reward and they had a great block and they were able to get it in. It’s frustrating but I think we were getting some chances there and we just got the short end of the stick.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On today’s game:

This is a team that’s played us hard this year. Wanting to do well against a top opponent, a rival opponent in our division, a game where we get our fans back and feel their support, that gave us a big lift of energy today, and then in a special building as well.

On special teams:

They did a really good job. Establishing the shot there, it’s hard to get pucks down inside and Joey Anderson did a great job, as he always does, in that area of the rink, and penalty kill did a great job, obviously that short-handed goal. Special teams made a difference today.

On Michael Hutchinson:

I thought he did a really good job, and exactly what you said calm, gave the team confidence in front of him. At times there were a little bit of stretches where there weren’t a lot of shots and that can be a tough time for goalies to stay in it and stay engaged and he was ready for every opportunity.

JOEY ANDERSON (2 GOALS, 1 ASSIST)

On today’s game:

We know that they’re a team that’s never going to go away and they came out in that third period really hot and made a push and I think we responded well for the most part, especially after that timeout we settled down and got back to the things that had been giving us success. It’s just about finding that for as much of a 60 as we can and tonight, we did a lot of good things for a long portion of that game.

On his line with Brett Seney and Antti Suomela:

You guys can see, we all think the game very similar. We enjoy playing with each other too. That’s the thing you can see it out there when one of us scores, we’re just genuinely excited for each other. It just makes coming to the rink that much better and like I said, the style of play is very similar, everyone works hard, we’re in the right spots. Reading off each other is really nice and easy and Antti has fit right in there really well with us.

JOSEPH BLANDISI (1 GOAL, 1 ASSIST)

On his line with Curtis Douglas and Jack Kopacka:

Our line was great all-night creating chances. The puck squirted out and it was a great net drive by Dougie. Jack threw it off the pads and it kicked out to me and I was able to pull it and find the corner which was good.

On Michael Hutchinson’s performance:
It’s every day with him. He comes in ready to work every day. He’s dialled in. His details are amazing and just having that calm presence back there, same with (Källgren), Woll. All the guys we have are calm back there and it gives the team an extra oomph when you need it. When they’re a rock, they can keep pucks out of the net and build momentum for the team.

POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Toronto’s performance:

Inconsistent. The last time we played them, we had a better start, we had a better first 40 minutes. It wasn’t until the 10-minute mark, the shots were 5-1 them and then we got our game. We found it in the second half, the last 10 minutes of the first period, we outshot them nine to nothing. Came out in the second period, started to get rolling again and then they score a couple and it felt like there was lack of passion, lack of response, lack of energy on the bench.

On what Laval does well against Toronto:

They’re an aggressive team, they pressure hard. So, if we’re not finding our way on our retrievals and our breakouts they make it hard for us and the way they crash the net, we talked about it before the game of how much we’ve got to protect the crease and in-and-around our goalie and it was too easy for them to get there tonight. They had a couple tap-ins there where we just weren’t strong enough and having numbers at our net.

On Mrázek’s performance:
Petr played well. He looked good, didn’t look like he was hesitant. I thought he gave us a great effort and kept us in the game and a lot of mistakes and reasons for the pucks going in the net were on us.

PETR MRÁZEK

On how it felt to return to play following his injury:

It felt great. I haven’t played for a while and it’s good to get the action going and see the plays from the ice and how the game goes. So, happy to be back and happy to see the action.

On what he was looking to accomplish:

To make sure I settled in and see the play, be patient in the D zone and be aware of everything. Those things I’ve worked on in practice in more detail, but you know how it is, the game is always different.

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On tonight’s game:
It’s tough because we did a lot of good things in the first half. We accomplished everything we wanted to set out with our start, we played the way we wanted to play. We definitely got comfortable once we got the lead. It’s going to be a good lesson for our group. This is a tough league, that was a tough opponent, especially a rival opponent. We really just left too much time and space for them as the game went on.

JOEY ANDERSON (1 GOAL)

On the third period:
We just took our foot off the gas. I think we came out there and played two periods exactly how we wanted to. We had the game in our hands and it was just bleh. The third period was just kind of empty from us, and then we leave Hutchy out to dry there. The breakdowns we had obviously led to pucks in our net. It’s just not acceptable to come out after a period like that.

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.

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.

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 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 Ian Scott:
Ian did a great job. If you take into consideration how long it’s been for him to get into a live action game like that against an opponent like that. You could tell in the first period he had some nervous energy and movement, but he settled right in, made some big saves. Then in the second period, he looked very comfortable. It’s incredible just how poised and calm he looks back there. Kind of mirrors his personality. For his first game, he should be really proud of that.

On today’s game:
The process was in place, the competitiveness was there, the consistency was there. To fight back in the second period the way we did to get the game even after being down, the team showed a lot of character. There was definitely a lot more consistency today.

IAN SCOTT

On his first start since returning from injury:
There’s not a lot of words. It’s been a long time and I was just happy to be out there again.

On how the game developed for him:
There were definitely a few nerves but at the end of the day, I can trust that I’ve prepared enough for this and that I’ve put in the work. A lot of work went on behind the scenes and after a while coming back, I was able just to roll with things.
