Canes Need To Play Better

Coach Laviolette answers some questions today.
Q. Your team was pretty upset with the officiating last night, the goal and some other calls. After Game 1 Craig MacTavish was pretty upset about faceoffs, he says the squeaky wheel gets the grease, is all of this part of the gamesmanship of the Stanley Cup Final? COACH PETER LAVIOLETTE: You guys asked me questions about the officiating, I just gave an answer. I wasn't up here to complain about it. You said, did the officials come over and tell you about the goal. I said no, there was no communication about the goal. Did you think it was goaltender interference? Yeah, I did. But you are asking the questions, we're not up here making a gripe, so sometimes it comes off the wrong way, we should clear that up a little bit. But regardless we put ourselves in position to take penalties maybe because we didn't skate as well as we needed to, and we got to do a better job at making sure that we don't take penalties and we stay disc iplined. So ultimately there could be disagreements with last night but we need to play a better game.
