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

    “We played really well. I’d take that game 82 times.”
    On whether the difference tonight was facing a strong goaltender with the team posting 51 shots:
    “Not all the shots we got are of high quality. There is a lot of perimeter stuff there. We had more than
    enough chances to score more than we did. Didn’t make good on some of our stuff around the net and
    we didn’t get much luck. We had some pucks that the goalie found through traffic really well and some
    tips and things like that, that normally when you get that many at him, one of those find a way in for you.
    That didn’t happen for us tonight and we didn’t score enough to pull in the game so you let them run
    around and we make a couple mistakes and they made good on it but as I said I’d take that game 82
    times from our team.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On Toronto taking control during the first period and whether the game got away from the team as

    it went on:
    “I don’t think it really necessarily got away, I thought we played a really good game for the most part. I
    thought our start was really good, I thought our process was really good and I mean I just think our time
    and possession and scoring chances and opportunities like we had plenty of them so they hung around,
    their goalie made some big saves and they hung around. They are a good team, they have good players,
    skilled players that can obviously put the puck in the net and make plays and they hung around and like I
    said I thought we did a lot of really good things tonight, especially our start but we couldn’t capitalize on
    some chances and we couldn’t extend our lead and like I said they hung around.”
    WILLIAM NYLANDER
    On his game-tying goal:

    “It was a great play by Mitch and John and I was just able to tap it in so it was nice to get the 2-2 goal. We
    are going to end up in situations like this coming down the line so we have to be confident when were are
    down.”
    ERIK KÄLLGREN
    On tonight’s game at Bell Centre
    :
    “It was loud. Good crowd. It was exciting but not happy with the game.”

    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
    On Jake Muzzin’s status:
    “I don’t have much of an update other than that he’s going to stay here in Montreal overnight for
    observations, that’s really all I have.”
    On giving up too many chances off the rush:
    “We didn’t do a good enough job coming out of the zone. We lost races, we weren’t connected. When our
    defence were up and involved in tight our forwards let guys get loose so we just didn’t do a good enough
    job at that.”
    JOHN TAVARES
    On tonight’s game:
    “It wasn’t very good. Probably as disappointing of a game for us this year. We have to clean up what
    we’re giving up off the rush. It’s obviously something that is continuously giving the other team
    opportunities and life and certainly for them tonight they generated a lot off of that. I thought in-zone play
    we didn’t give up a whole lot but off the rush was just not very good and continues to be an area we have
    to find a way to get better in and get our game connected. Disappointing one tonight.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On tonight’s effort:
    “I think just all throughout our lineup just not good enough. Forwards, defence, goaltending, just not good
    enough from everybody.”
    On losing two games in a row:
    “I think you never want to drop two in a row. We believe in our group and we believe we’re a good team
    and we never want to drop two in a row so we’ve got to put the fire out now. Not a whole lot of good in
    this one tonight but you’ve got to take the good and take the bad and move on to the next game and
    we’re right back at it tomorrow.”
    MORGAN RIELLY
    On tonight’s loss:
    “They obviously came out strong. If you look at the way our team played, I think we gave up too many
    odd man rushes, too many chances against and they’ve got skilled people over there so when you give
    them chances they’re going to score.”
    On the team giving up too many chances off the rush:
    “I think as a group we’re going to have to look at it obviously more. It’s been a common theme if you look
    back the last couple weeks, in terms of the chances against off the rush and as d-men you’ve got to take
    some responsibility on trying to make good defensive plays in those instances but as a group we’ve got to
    do a better job of trying to limit those.”
    PETR MRÁZEK
    On tonight’s game:
    “Difficult game for us. Obviously we want to come out strong in the first period but we were down 0-2 so
    not the way you want to start the game on the road but I think we battled in the third period and the good
    thing is in this league we’ve got a chance to play tomorrow again and play better.

LEAFS 2, HABS 1: What they said.

HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
Q. Kristen Shilton: Sheldon what did you think of the team’s overall effort tonight?
Sheldon Keefe: I thought obviously the first 10 minutes we were not good; it took us a while to get
comfortable in the game but from then on I thought the effort was really strong. Guys worked and
competed; it was a tight game right till the end. Happy that we found our way to be on the right side of
it of course.
Joshua Clipperton: What was it like having a full building here tonight?
Sheldon Keefe: Outstanding. Right from the time that I walked out onto the bench for the introductions
it was different. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the place full like that. I thought the crowd was
engaged right from the start. We needed Soupy to hold us in early and they were engaged all the way
through. That five-on-three penalty kill they were outstanding. I thought they were a real factor in the
game today and you could feel it on the bench, the energy was there in game like this where it’s so close
it was really great to see all our fans back.
Q. Chris Johnston, Toronto Star: How important is it for you to have a skill set like Kampfs when you
face that long three-on-five?
Sheldon Keefe: It’s a great tool for us, that’s why we were really happy to be able to add him. He’s a
unique player for us. He’s got a different skill set than a lot of our guys, he’s really strong in faceoffs,
especially on his left side and his penalty killing is really good but his line five-on-five was really good as
well, they got chances and spent a lot of time in the offensive zone. I thought Kampf was really good and
so were Kase and Engvall.
JUSTIN HOLL (4 BLOCKED SHOTS)
Q. Lance Hornby, Toronto Sun: How big was the five-on-three? Yours and David Kampf’ s shot block
and all those little things?
Justin Holl: For sure I think the penalty kill was a huge factor tonight and anytime you can win or tie a
special teams battle we’re pretty confident in our ability at five-on-five. The block I think I should have
had that seam in the first place so its probability shouldn’t have happened in the first place but always
feels good to make a big play for the team.
Q. Mark Masters, TSN: What did you think of the atmosphere here tonight?
Justin Holl: It was awesome. You really take for granted playing in front of fans when you have a year
like last year where weren’t able to, so it was really terrific and it powered us no question about it.
PIERRE ENGVALL (1 GOAL)
Q. Mark Masters: How did you feel about your game tonight?
Pierre Engvall: Felt pretty good, I got to play with Kampf and Kase and I felt like we had chemistry right
away. We let in one goal there in the first period but otherwise I think we played hard and got a lot of ozone shifts and I’m happy with the game.
Q. Chris Johnston, Toronto Star: When you play with those two guys, what is the focus of the line?
What are your trying to do?
Pierre Engvall: I think we’re starting in the d-zone and trying to play them tough there and not give
them much and then use our skill and speed to create offense and I think we showed that today. We
played hard down there but always got a lot of offensive shifts.
JACK CAMPBELL (31 SAVES)
Q. Marty Klinkenberg, Globe and Mail: What was that first 5 to 10 minutes like for you?
Jack Campbell: It was fun, I mean to have everyone back in the building it was electric. I thought the
boys did a great job of responding after they scored, and we really executed the game plan and I think
the crowd gave us the advantage tonight to give us the advantage and a huge two points.
Q. Lance Hornby, Toronto: The electricity really came into play during the third period five-on-three, it
got really loud and you were getting support with some shot blocks.
Jack Campbell: It was amazing, Justin Holl single handedly had the game saver there. Everybody was
blocking shots the whole night on the PK. They were moving it around pretty good but anytime they got
a look we were blocking it, so the boys played amazing in front of me tonight.
WILLIAM NYLANDER (1 GOAL)
Q. Mark Masters, TSN: On your goal, why did you delay it the way you did?
William Nylander: I don’t know, it just happened. It’s just what happened out there. I didn’t really plan
on doing anything It’s just the way it unfolded.
Q. Joshua Clipperton, Canadian Press: What does it say about Jacks play, especially early where
Montreal didn’t give up much?
