    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
    On Auston Matthews scoring 50 goals:

    “It was fun. The fans enjoyed it. It made for a great atmosphere there in the third period. They were
    encouraging him and pushing Auston and I thought it was great. Good to see the fans have that moment
    and Auston to have that accomplishment here on home ice, it was great.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On if he thought scoring 50 might not happen tonight:
    “I don’t know, I just keep playing and keep shooting and obviously I had some good looks but not sure if I
    ever envisioned it being an empty net goal but I’ll take it, a goal’s a goal. Like you said, I had some good
    chances tonight just wasn’t going in and fortunately it did in the last minute.”
    On the reception he received from his teammates after the game:
    “Wet. I got pretty soaked, lots of water and stuff but it’s awesome. The love and support from all these
    guys, we’ve got an extremely close group. This obviously doesn’t happen without all these guys on this
    team so it means a lot.”
    MARK GIORDANO
    On Auston Matthews scoring 50 goals:

    “Pretty cool, I think watching him on tv over the years and playing against him is one thing but when you
    get to see him every day, day-in and day-out, in practice with his shot and his release, that’s pretty
    impressive. I honestly think I’m more impressed watching him play defensively since I’ve been here. It’s
    been unreal, the way he backchecks and plays in his own end and then when he gets his chances it’s
    pretty cool. That moment must have been pretty special for him.”
    On scoring his first goal as a Maple Leaf:
    “It felt pretty good. I think it was Johnny going back door there and I was trying to hit him but I’ll take that
    bounce. It was nice to see it go in. I thought individually I wasn’t very good to start the game so I felt like
    that really helped me get going and move on from a couple mistakes.”
    WILLIAM NYLANDER
    On Matthews scoring 50 and the fan reaction:
    “It was pretty unreal. It actually reminded me of when I was younger and my dad was playing in
    Washington and Ovechkin scored 50 one night when I was there. I think it was the night where he did the
    fire gestured. It brought back some memories and it’s just incredible and well deserved.”

    POSTGAME QUOTES:
    JOHN TAVARES

    Q: On where the game got away from them:
    John Tavares: “We completely played into their game and allowed them to use their transition and
    they’re one of the best in the league in that area. We had two-on-ones and the opportunities that we gave
    up were disappointing. I think we really got away from out game today. We still battled to keep the door
    open going into the third and obviously we just weren’t able to generate enough… giving up those
    opportunities and the amount of goals, obviously you can’t win hockey games this late, yeah we just got
    away for whatever reason…”
    Q: On Joseph Woll’s play:
    John Tavares: Yeah, it could have been a lot worse. One hundred percent. It’s not good enough the way
    we defended tonight and the way we played through the neutral zone. Especially just allowed them to use
    their speed and their skill which they’re so good with… He did a good job making a bunch of saves
    keeping it what it was because of that we got it to 5-3 and gave ourselves a little bit of hope in the third
    and obviously you know what happened.”
    AUSTON MATTHEWS
    On the emotions of the game and where the game got away from them:
    Auston Matthews: “I’m not really sure to be honest, I think it was just kind of a snowball effect. It just kind
    of spiraled out of control. It wasn’t really hockey in that third period, it was a bit of a gong show. I don’t
    really know how else to put it.”
    MORGAN RIELLY
    Q: On an emotional game:
    Morgan Rielly: “Yeah I think it’s important to balance it. We want to try to win the game but you want to
    stick up for your teammates and try to stick together as a group. So, I think you have to find the balance
    and keep pushing all the way to the end.”
    TIMOTHY LILJEGREN
    Q: On getting back into the lineup:
    Timothy Liljegren: “It felt good. Obviously, it would have felt better if we had won but it felt good to get
    back out there.
