John Tortorella:

“I thought we played a really good first period; unlucky goal. Really, for about 8-10 minutes of that second period, that’s where we struggled and they’re a good enough team to capitalize on those situations. We gave up some odd-man rushes. A bad change cost us a goal. So that 8-10, 11 minutes of the second period, that was the worst part of our game. But other than that I thougt we put in some good minutes.”

On the third period:

“We’ve been doing it all year long. We just couldn’t get things done around the net. We had some chances. Some of our best chances we shot wide. We just couldn’t finish around the net. So we just keep battling on here. That’s all.”

On the second goal:

“It’s a bad change and we get caught with an odd-man situation.”

“In that middle stanza, the middle part of the second period, we’re too deep with our third guy. We’re trying to crawl back into it, trying to force them, and they did a lot of flipping and flying the zone. And they in-directed a lot of pucks. They’re a pretty good team and we lost our third guy there on some pinches and I thought we over-committed where we were three flat in their end zone and they just threw it by us.”

“They’re a good hockey club. They’re on a run. Their goaltender’s been playing well, so you give them credit. They’re a good team and they’re oportunistic. Where they had chances to get us, they got us. And I thought they defended pretty well, too.”

On Gaborik’s performance:

“I’m afraid to say anything about Gabby’s game because it turns nutso around here. So we’ll just generalize as far as the team. I’m not going to talk about individual players. He scored a goal, eh?”

On the line juggling.

“Some guys are fighting it. Some guys I thought were playing better than others, so we switched them It happens.”
