Viktor Arvidsson (video), Trevor Moore, & Todd McLellan 3/14 Post Game Quotes

Watch Viktor Arvidsson’s Post Game Interview Here

Trevor Moore on the relief and joy he showed after scoring his goal in the second period
For sure, you’ve just got to take it day-by-day, but it weighs on you when you don’t get one for a while and then getting hurt being out for a long time, it feels like maybe you’ll never score again. Just to be able to get one and know that you can still do it is a nice feeling.
Moore on if this time coming back was easier than the first
Yeah, I was able to skate and keep my legs this time, which has been positive. Last time, I had that week and a half over the All-Star break, which was good, but I couldn’t practice with the team. This time has been better for sure.
Moore on seeing improvements on the power play this season
It’s huge. Last year we relied on our 5-on-5 game and we still have to rely on it, we still have to be a better 5-on-5 team, but now we have the added boost of having really good special teams. I think it’s been great.
Moore on getting contributions from throughout the lineup tonight
I think we have to play that way if we want to go deep. If you look at teams who do go deep, it’s not one or two lines, you need everybody. It’s all six defensemen and it’s all four lines.

Todd McLellan on if he saw the things the team practiced show up on the power play tonight
Yeah, and let’s face it, we didn’t reinvent the power play, we just got a little sharper and a little faster. I’m not even sure how we really do it, we try and convince the players that they’re just a fraction slower than what they were in the past. Whether it’s done through video or conversation, today they moved the puck a little bit quicker. Pretty good penalty kill on that squad, so to score two, we’re fortunate.
McLellan on seeing connectivity improve between the first and second periods
We talked about it between periods. We were, I thought, excellent below the goal line to the hashmarks on our breakouts, we were connected there, it was the next play and often that’s on your forwards for just getting casual or sloppy. We fixed it and the guys did a good job in the second and third. They had a pretty good idea of how we were going to play the game and they forechecked well against it, so we really had to work exceptionally hard just to get out of our end, but the guys did a good job of it.
McLellan on seeing Trevor Moore score that goal, after all the work he’s put in
I think the look on his face was joy and happiness, of course, but a lot of relief too. Just to give you an idea of how important he is to to our team and to our group, everybody’s really happy for him. You know, we always get excited for for a goal, but that was a special goal, it’s one that’s been coming for a while.
McLellan on finding four goals tonight against a top-tier goaltender and a structured team
We talked about being direct and maybe releasing the shot before we really had to. Take Walker’s shot [on Lizotte’s goal], for example, had he waited just a fraction longer for all the traffic to get there. Then, there are some things that we needed to do in and around the net, they box out really well, so you’ve got to find a way to stay in a goaltender’s eyes, but get loose and it’s not easy. We did a bit of work on that in practice yesterday and I thought it paid off.
McLellan on the concept of stats and if he’d like more national hype around his team
We’re fine where we are. Here’s what I know, stats can work for or against you based on the day you pick them. So, you can pick January 27 and if you go to the 25th, there are four teams with more points. We do the same thing with the power play, when we want them confident, we go back to the two goals we scored and hey, we’re 2-for-20 instead of 0-for-18. It’s just about us doing what we do, day after day after day, rinse and repeat. Simple.
