Todd McLellan 12/13/23 Post-Game Quotes:

Todd McLellan
On what he felt changed tonight between the first period and the final 40 minutes

I think your assessment is real accurate. The first period was a little bit of feeling out, we were fortunate to get the lead. I thought we played the second period lackadaisical, not focused, not driven, played with a lot of hope in our game, played in pieces. The first goal, Phil Danault’s the fresh guy who steps on the ice, the rest of the guys are tired. He’s got to manage that puck until we can get guys off, we turn it over, it goes the other way. Reminds me a little bit of the goal in New York against the Islanders, you’re up 2-0 and you’re lackadaisical and you’re sloppy and then you allow the other team to gain some momentum. You know, we didn’t really have our game going in the first either. It was good, but it wasn’t great.
On the performance of Winnipeg’s top line in tonight’s game
They played an outstanding game. They were good, we didn’t have an answer for them tonight. There’s nothing wrong with admitting that because they deserve the praise and the three of them played really well, four or five of them, I guess, when they got their pairs out there.
On the game management mistakes and how to correct those
We’ve got slapped here a couple of times, maybe our team needs it a bit. I’m concerned about game management again, I’m concerned about playing in pieces. Four fresh guys and one tired guy, I don’t know how many times tonight somebody missed a shift because somebody couldn’t get off. Sometimes that’s due in large part to what the other team is doing to you, hemming you in, but I don’t think we’re playing as units of five right now, I don’t know if there’s a little selfishness creeping in, but it’ll be addressed and it will be fixed.
On what a team can find out about itself by learning from adversity
We’re not going to roll through and win 41 road games. We’re not going to play at a .750 or .780 percentage, it hasn’t been done. Boston was the closest team to doing it. It’s not humanly possible, the rest of the teams are pretty good, so we’re going to go through rough patches. It’s been a while since we had a rough patch. You could look back to the beginning of the year, where we played like this and gave up five goals a night or whatever it was and we had to figure out ways to fix it. We’re capable of doing that and we expect the group to respond to it.
On the distribution of minutes between centers and lines
I’ve tried to lay this out for everybody, when you come and you have the three types of centermen – four because I appreciate what Lizzo does – somebody has to give something up. I think Kopi got to 21 minutes tonight, a lot of it was the last four minutes, he barely came off the ice, but we’ve consistently played at about 19, 17, 14 and a half, 15 if you want that and then 10 and we’re not changing. I don’t care who plays 19 17, 14 and a half or 11, I don’t care. They decide it.
On if there’s a point in the season where he can make judgement about Pierre-Luc Dubois’ production
No, I don’t think so, because he’s also playing on a team that, it’s hard for me to say this right now because we didn’t play real well tonight, but we’ve had some success and he’s played a big part in that. We will write and we’ll want unreal stats from every individual on our team, but the most important one is the wins and the losses. We can all be better and we’ll all push towards that.
On if he feels that Dubois’ has had less consistency with his linemates than other players
I would disagree with you. The only line we haven’t tinkered with was Kopi’s line. Really, Fiala moved up from PL’s line, he was playing with our leading scorer, and we just flipped those guys around. Grunny and JAD have moved around a little bit, so it hasn’t been dramatic. PL gets to play on the on the power play, our second-unit power play, and people around him have to help him out, but he’s also here to make other people better as well.
