Coaches Talk

"I'm pretty confident in this group right now. Every time it looked like we were going on a slide, these guys found a way to rebound."

-Jon Cooper after the Tampa Bay Lightning went down 0-2 to the Montreal Canadiens.  More on the Lightning from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Times.

“We didn’t have the puck enough. When we had it, we’ve got to start putting pucks in the areas where we can get them back. We’ve got to get pucks in areas where once we get it, we can hang on to it. I thought we didn’t play with the puck as much as we normally do, but the one thing about our team tonight — I thought we got better and better as the periods went on.

‘The third period was obviously our best period, but we started playing more of our game in the third period than in the first two. We’ve got to kind of make those adjustments here, and hopefully have three periods more like the third period was, and capitalize on the chances that we had.”

-Claude Julien post-game after the Boston Bruins lost 1-0 to the Detroit Red Wings.  More from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.

At the end of the night, we handed them their opportunities and their goals. We skated well, the effort was great but we made a couple mistakes that cost us.

-Lindy Ruff, head coach of the Dallas Stars after their 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.  More post-game quotes from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.  The Stars are down 0-2 to the Ducks.

I’m still trying to figure out how they “handed” the game to the Wings?  Looked more like Pavel used some smoke and mirrors to me.

That was the quote from Lindy Ruff, not Julien

Lol oops.  Still, pure magic by Pav put us over the edge.
