Watch Viktor Arvidsson’s Post Game Interview Here

Adrian Kempe on the changes in the game between the first and second period
I don’t think we played badly, but there was no talk in the d-zone and stuff like that. We were trying to be a little bit too fancy, we still had a lot of puck possession, a lot of o-zone time, but there was no communication out there after we were up 5-1. It wasn’t good enough, but it was a good lesson for us and we came out with the win, so that was big.
Kempe on exceeding last season’s goal total with his 36th of the season
It feels good that I can deliver, when I’m playing on the first line that’s something you’ve got to do. It’s pretty easy to play with the guy next to me, he usually feeds me a lot of pucks and it’s on me to put it in the net. It’s been like that all year and I’m happy that I could live up to expectations.
Kempe on the team's win streak

Over the last couple of weeks, we feel like our game is there. It’s not going to be perfect every period, that showed up tonight, but we’ve played really well over the last couple of weeks. We took that a little bit for granted in the second period, but I think we showed that we can not play our best game and still beat teams. That was a good character win.

Sean Durzi on getting back into the lineup for the first time since his injury
Yeah, I mean it feels good, a good mood getting back in the groove with the guys and it was nice having a nice routine again. It felt good.
Durzi on what he felt was clicking with his power-play unit tonight
We were laughing before, we’re back together, we knew we were hot at the beginning of the season and throughout the year a little bit, but I mean we’ve just got good chemistry, skilled players making skilled plays. I thought for a lot of guys, the execution was there and we knew it had to be tonight. I’m proud of the guys.
Durzi on the group being able to close out a game like that in the third period
I mean, you’ve seen it over the last little bit, here of holding leads and playing well as a team. Obviously there are a ton of things we’ve got to clean up, these games aren’t going to happen the rest of the way I don’t think, it’s going to be tight the rest of the year and we’ve got to be able to close it out a little better than we did tonight. That’s something we want to clean up. Proud of the effort, two points is two points and this time of the year, you need everything you can get, so happy with that, but obviously a lot of things we can clean up.

Todd McLellan on what he felt changed between the first period and the final 40 minutes
We weren’t playing our game, obviously. We got a little bit cute, a little bit fancy, didn’t go after them hard. They know what works and what doesn’t work, had to remind them of that a little bit, but it wasn’t yelling and screaming. It was just reminders of things that we needed to do better. It got a little bit better in the third, but I thought we let that game get away on us and it wasn’t our best work
McLellan on winning the special teams battle and getting four on the power play
Well, special team, we got dinged up from two on the penalty kill, so we were 0-for-2 there, but the powerplay did a really good job. You’ve got to win in different ways, even when you’re not playing your best, which was evident tonight and the power play came through.
McLellan on if he felt tonight was different than the high-scoring games early in the season
Yeah, I think it is. I think we were able to get to a young goaltender and it came real fast. Nothing ever comes easy in this league, but the powerplay was clicking, everything felt good. Then, we played like it felt good instead of playing our game and that’s when it changed. I don’t think it’s like the other games where we gave up five or six a night. We had an off night and I think we can dial it back in, we’re going to need to.
McLellan on his evaluations of Durzi and Fiala in their first games back from injury
I thought they both looked good. Durz played his game, he had good vision, power play looked sharper, he moved pucks out of his zone, didn’t get himself into a lot of defensive trouble. I thought Kev looked dynamic. He was good on his edges, he made great passing plays with Arvy and Phil, that line was likely our most dangerous and it was really good to see both of them back in the lineup.
McLellan on Viktor Arvidsson’s game right now
He’s a hell of a player. We see the shot, the skating, the tenacity night after night, but there’s a lot of other things that go into that. His competitiveness on the bench and his discussion that he has with his linemates, him setting things up powerplay wise. He’s into it and it rubs off on others.
McLellan on if being able to win games in different ways is a good sign going into the playoffs
Well, this streak here at home was one I believe was in a certain way up until tonight. We checked well, we defended well, we had some timely scoring, we had great goaltending. Tonight, some of those things got away on us but we still found a way to win. I don’t think that game that we played or brought to the rink tonight, in the last 50 minutes of the game will get us a lot of wins in the playoffs, but the other games in the homestand will give us a chance.

Let's hope that defensive performance is behind them, and they can get back to what they were doing before last game. I haven't seen so many open forwards in the slot from an opposing team since Quick was in net. I felt bad for Copley.

Yup. I disagree that it was a "telling" game or whatever for Copley. They left him out to dry. If you don't believe that look at Doughty's face after his goal. He's pissed at himself.
 
I'm guessing they are gonna be fired up after the game last week so, be ready fellas.
