Fiala & McLellan 10/19/23 Post-Game Quotes:
On what he liked most about the win tonight
We played 60 minutes, consistent. They didn’t have much, it was a little bit of a weird game I thought, not much on both ends, but we capitalized on our chances and won the game like that, so that’s great.
On the momentum swing that fourth goal gave the group
Yeah, that was huge. I mean, they had the lead there, then we tied it and we came right back and had the lead in, I don’t know, a minute or whatever it was we scored two goals. I think that was for sure a momentum switch, so that was great from our group.
On how big of a contributor Pierre-Luc Dubois has been early in the season
He’s big, he has size, he wins puck battles, sees the ice and can score. He’s a great player for us and we appreciate him for sure.
On creating momentum tonight off a penalty kill that went 4-of-4
Well, you can lose a lot of momentum and confidence in a game where your penalty kill is giving up freebies. Tonight, if we would have given one up, even in the last five seconds there it almost went in, they had to earn it...I thought as we continued throughout the night, to effectively kill, it gives us more and more confidence.
On Vladislav Gavrikov’s understanding of when to effectively activate offensively
The one thing with Gavy is he understands the balance, he knows when to go. He darts in and he darts back out, so rarely is he caught deep, hanging around and not being able to cover his defensive responsibility.
On Pierre-Luc Dubois’ ability to create in tight spaces, and how he’s meshed with his line
I think they’re starting to complement each other and I think Laf’s doing a really good job on that line too, especially offensively. Defensively, they’ll gel eventually and figure each other out, but Pierre-Luc uses his body really well to shield and create shooting space...Pretty effective and finds that quiet ice at the right time, he has good timing.
