David Quinn’s post game comments (NYR):

  • Was that as well as you guys can play, “no, I always think we can play better but I certainly love a lot about our game tonight. Right from the drop of the puck, I really loved our forecheck, we got out of our end quickly, we didn’t mess around with the puck in the neutral zone. We did almost everything right except score. It’s really disappointing, it really was a kick in the gut to have that shot go in and play as well as we did in the third and give that up late. We have to fight through some adversity here, I think we can certainly draw from this game to understand what we’re going to have to do have success. We will get home and get some rest and get ready for a big game on Tuesday night.”
  • On the challenge of bouncing back, “right now it really hurts, when we step back and let the emotions settle in our guys will be happy with the way we played. We feel good as a staff with how we looked as a team tonight, the challenge is to do it consistently. Right now it’s a tough time to talk about it because it hurts right now.”
  • Did you see them support each other tonight, “we really, our puck movement was as good as it’s been all year, our puck support was good. I really liked our play in the neutral zone, we’d get pucks there and we weren’t messing around with it, turning it up quickly and our forwards were working hard for our D and our D were really purposeful and not letting Vancouver get in their structure in the neutral zone. It’s just really unfortunate the way it ended.”
  • Did you plan on starting Georgiev, “I was debating on what to do and last night Hank wasn’t feeling great, he wasn’t feeling great in the morning and we were kicking around what to do and when I heard that I pretty much made the decision to play Georgie.”
