    Desjardins, Kopitar, Wagner 1/3 Postgame Quotes

    Read more quotes and articles at Jon Rosen's Blog here


    Willie Desjardins, on whether he was “cringing” with Tampa Bay’s early power plays:
    They were tough ones. The high-stick was a four. That was a tough way to start. Brownie’s guy had a chance at an open net, so he kind of had to take that one. That certainly got them going. Our first five or six minutes was not bad, but that certainly got them going.
    Desjardins, on whether he was “unhappy” with the turnovers:
    You’re always unhappy with turnovers. Especially against that team, they’re really explosive. We talked about that before the start of the game. We’ve got to make smart plays at the blue line. That third goal, their guy made a good read on it.
    Desjardins, on whether it’s rare to see a team so heavy on skill and talent in the salary cap era:
    Yeah, they’ve done a good job there. They have a lot of speed, their defense are big, but they’re mobile, and they come at you with every line. They’re a good team, their record shows that. They’ve been on a hot streak for the last 13, 14 games. Tonight, we weren’t good enough tonight. They were just too good. That’s certainly one of the better teams we’ve faced this year.
    Desjardins, on the team’s “compete level”:
    It was tough on the power play when they got going. I didn’t think the guys quit at all. I didn’t think there was any quit, but I didn’t think we executed. I think we got off our game, and we couldn’t find it to get back. But it wasn’t that we quit, we just didn’t have our game right.
    Desjardins, on whether players feel more pressure when playing a team like Tampa Bay:
    No, I think guys, they’re scared – when you play a team like that, you know you have to play well or they can make you look bad in your own rink. Our guys were ready because they knew that could happen. I think maybe the younger guys might do that a little bit, I don’t think the older guys do, though.

    Anze Kopitar, on the challenge of facing the top power play team:
    
Obviously, you know coming in that the power play is very dangerous and it’s a game plan to stay out of the box, but we took the penalties and tried to kill it off, but they’re good and they capitalized on them.
    Kopitar, on whether Tampa Bay looked every bit the top team in the league:
    Yeah, they played, obviously they played really well. Their power play, I don’t know what the percentage must have been, but it certainly must’ve been high, so that really got them going.
    Kopitar, on what makes Tampa Bay so dangerous:
    
I think just you know the depth throughout the lineup really. It seems like it doesn’t matter who’s on the ice, they’re always dangerous and they’re a little bit more offensive minded obviously, but they back it up. Six, put up five the other day in Anaheim, so you want to contain them as much as you can and we didn’t do a good job tonight and that’s the bottom line.

    Austin Wagner, on the challenge of recovering from a 2-0 deficit after the 5-on-3 penalty kill:
    The power play at the beginning, we know they have the best power play in the league over there, so I thought we just needed to bounce back and have some energy. When they have the best power play in the league, I think staying out of the box is key.
    Wagner, on Thompson coming to his defense in a scrum:
    
You know that’s a big thing I think when guys are willing to stick up for each other it shows that they have the passion, so I think he showed a had a lot of heart there and Tommer doesn’t back down from a lot of stuff so it was fortunate that he came in, but at the same time that’s the way the game goes. You’re losing the game and things aren’t going your way and sometimes emotions will boil over there and that’s what happened there I guess.
    Wagner, on if he considers tonight’s game a learning experience:
    
We’re going to watch video and we’re going to learn from our mistakes, so that’s all we can do now. There’s no point in dwelling anymore, it’s just learning from what we did wrong and you know, we’re going to do that.
    Wagner, on Tampa Bay being the best team in the league:
    
They have a good power play and we had penalties that they scored on the power play tonight and that’s obviously frustrating. They’re a good team over there, but we’re also a good team here, we just need to come together.

    55 combined saves.

    Thanks once again for the great Game Day Thread Nyssa! I haven't been able to sleep tonight because of the flu (even though I had the flu shot). The GDT is about the only thing giving me any comfort.

    Thanks Nyssa and Mr. Univac for these GDTs!

    After using detailed statistical analysis, and the time-honored method of throwing darts at a dartboard, I'll go with:

    56 total saves.

    Wow. I hadn't remembered that the Kings are Baja Edmonton...





    GKG, or LFH, whatever...
