from Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune,
Coach Joel Quenneville is usually a morning person after games. Even losses don't seem as bad the next day.
Not so much when the sun rose on Thursday, the day after a 6-2 home loss to the Kings in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.
“I woke up this morning way more angry than when I exited the game,” he said before the team flew to Los Angeles, where the series continues Saturday with Game 3. “Normally it’s the other way around. Certainly there’s a lot of positives to take out of the game. But the little details and the way we gave them the goals (are negatives). Exiting a game like that is a game that should get your attention.”
Quenneville’s message is to the Hawks is not to put Wednesday’s loss entirely behind them but to channel their anger.
“I think there’s got to be a reaction,” he said. “We shouldn’t be happy about it. That’s what we’re looking for. I think that’s how you get past it, doing something about it. We should be angry about how we got beat. I think there’s anger involved and that’s not a bad thing to have.”
