from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
On his goal, Lang said Rivet’s decision to back off surprised him.
“Definitely, it gave me a little more time and space. I think he just didn’t want to risk it, that I would pass it and then Johan [Franzen] would have a breakaway. But he made a split-second decision and I think he made the right one for me.”
Sharks’ coach Ron Wilson was unhappy with his team’s defensive play on the tying goal, by Lang. Without naming names, he suggested his players were cheating on the offensive side of the puck, instead of paying attention to their assignments. For the record, the Sharks’ forwards on the ice for the winning goal were Patrick Marleau, Bill Guerin and Rismiller.
“We blew the game in the last minute,” said Wilson. “They’re a damn good hockey team and they were desperate. We need a couple of guys to wake up in the series, or it’s going to be over….”
