Todd McLellan 12/28/23 Post-Game Quotes:

Todd McLellan
On his assessment of tonight’s game and his thoughts on the team’s connectivity

I thought as the game wore on, we got more connected. Naturally, when they had the lead, they’re going to defend a little bit more, we spent more time in their zone. They did an outstanding job of blocking shots and clearing the net, which they’re very good at. I think the disappointing part for me is the type of goals we gave up. You can be connected offensively, but also defensively, and couple of them were gifts and when a team commits like that to defend and block and front and do the things they did around the net, you can’t give them gifts. You’re not going to get more than two a night. I really thought the second goal killed us. There was nothing going on in that rush or on that play and all of a sudden, Amads has got a breakaway, so that hurt us.
On Vegas finishing with more than 30 shot blocks tonight and where he attributes that to
They commit, they won a Cup by doing that. They play their d-zone coverage a certain way, where their big defenseman are near the net and they sell out. It obviously is a championship brand. They didn’t win by getting away from that and they still have it in their game. So, it was good for us again to play in a game like that. For me, the disappointment wasn’t getting three, it was giving up three.
On the team’s first periods over the last 48 hours
No, they haven’t been our best, but I think the game presents itself a little bit different in the third period. The first period, we were feeling each other out. I don’t want the shots were, 8-8, there weren’t a lot of chances. Yeah, we gave up a goal, sometimes that’s the way it goes, it’s a boxing match or a chess match and all of a sudden, they’ve got the lead. You naturally sit back just a little bit more than maybe you want to and we started to shoot a lot. We had zone time, but obviously we didn’t score.
On the three goals against and if he’d classify them as team breakdowns or individual mistakes
Just a couple individual mistakes. I don’t think they were team mistakes or system mistakes, they were reads and situations where they took advantage of them. When we had those opportunities, and there weren’t many of them, we didn’t quite get it done.
On any takeaways from tonight that he liked
We were resilient, we didn’t go away. Disappointing in the type of goals we gave up because we don’t normally do that, but for the most part, we had zone time, we didn’t create enough or get enough through and you have to get the other team credit, sometimes. Sometimes they just do a job that’s done well enough that it makes it hard for the opposition.
