“You have to be prepared to win the game 1-0 and you don’t give away easy chances like we did. We were well in control. It was 1-1 and when you’re in control, you don’t give up odd-man rushes. You don’t go on a shift where you’re overextended, sixty seconds into the shift, and then you try to get another offensive opportunity. You give the other team life. That’s how you get beat.’‘

“Teams that end up being playoff teams _ which we’re going to be _ they don’t beat themselves…and we beat ourselves tonight. It’s disappointing. We did it the last game and we didn’t have to come in here and rant and rave, because we thought we learned the lesson. But we didn’t. Tonight, we have to learn the lesson.”

-Marc Crawford, head coach of the Dallas Stars after losing 5-2 to the LA Kings last night.  More from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
