Toffoli & Bishop March 14th Post Game Quotes
Read more quotes and articles at Jon Rosen's Blog here
Tyler Toffoli, on losing an 11-round shootout:
We let one slip here. We had the lead there and itís one of those things that weíve just got to tighten up and find a way to bear down and lock it down, and we let one slip.
Toffoli, on the feeling in the room with 13 games remaining:
We need to win every game. We need to get rolling here and find a way to bear down and get two points in all these games coming up.
Toffoli, on Ben Bishopís performance:
He was huge. We definitely let him down in this one. I know I feel bad- [recording ends]
Ben Bishop, on the tough loss:
We played a good game, maybe deserved better. Itís a little unfortunate. They fan on two shots and they go in. We canít buy a goal there, but the guys played well. Obviously you go into a shootout, anything can happen. We got a point. Weíve got to look at the positive here and just try to keep moving forward and get as many points as we can.
Bishop, on whether pucks are eventually going to start going in during the shootout:
No, I mean, itís the shootout. You never know whatís going to happen. Sometimes theyíll go three for three, sometimes theyíre going to go two for 12. I donít know how many there were, but itís just the shootout. Once in the shootout, anything can happen. Itís more of the game thing. We played well. He fans on the first one, it goes five hole, he fans on the second one, it goes right to the guy on the back door. Itís a little unfortunate. Weíve just got to fight through it, look at the positive. We got a point. Itís better than zero, and weíd like to [get two], but youíve got to look at the positive right now.

Today's Poll Question:
The Kings give up the fewest shots in the league, and the Sabres give up the most. What will be the SHOT DIFFERENTIAL in the game? (the difference between shots by the Kings and shots by the Sabres) You don't have to say which team will get more, just guess the differential. +/-2 of the correct answer will get a point since this is a hard one.
