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.
