David Quinn said after the game (NYR):

  • Did you get an explanation on Lemieux, “I didn’t get an explanation, you all saw it. It gets real tiring talking about these things but what are you gonna do.”
  • On the second period killing penalties, “you lose two forwards and are completely out of sync, you kill 12 minutes of penalties in that period, really, just an incredible disadvantage. I thought we got off to a goof start in the first period, I liked our pace and energy, thought we had a real good first period and it just completely unraveled in the second period.”
  • “just talk about the fact that after we killed off the second five minute major that we tried to get three goals on one shift and you can’t do that, you have to be mentally tough to keep doing the right things and I think we got away from what we did in the first period. There was an awful lot going on, a lot of frustration setting in and that second five minute major put us in a different mindset. We gave them goals, we gave them two goals, complete gifts, the second and third are complete gifts and then we get a 5 on 3 and we don’t get a shot. We can talk about the penalties all we want and the things we have to get better at, the things we have to stop doing are things of that nature. You can’t gift wrap goals, you gotta make them earn them. When you get a 5 on 3 you gotta look threatening, you can’t do what we did. We can talk about the penalties but I’m going to focus on what we can do better.”
