Todd McLellan
On how much of tonight’s result was because of special teams

I think it played a significant role in the game, but not the be all, end all. Obviously, both of their goals came on our penalty kill, miscommunication on the first one, second one knocked it out of the air, give him credit for that. Our power play, I thought the Danault group was good, the other one wasn’t real good at all and that hurt us. As short-staffed as we are, that’s where we have to take advantage of some of those situations and get at least one and we failed to do that here and in San Jose, and it didn’t help us. The game that we did win, really short-staffed, we were able to score 6-on-4. When we took advantage of it, it helped us.
On if the team is “insulating” a young defense at all at 5-on-5 and if that puts more onus on the power play
We believe in the group that’s here. As they keep falling out, it gets tougher. As you get deeper in the batting order and guys end up playing significantly more minutes against opponents they normally wouldn’t play against, that catches up with you after a while. Then, in turn, the second part of your question, yeah it put more pressure on the power play or the penalty kill to get it done and we haven’t been good all year in those situations. It’s tough right now. I look at the game as whole and last year, playing this team, we gave up 55 shots and it was ugly. Tonight, we checked against them, we did what we could. It wasn’t enough and they capitalized on some mistakes, but I still believe that the group is further ahead now than it was last year against that team. There are some positives to take out of it.
On what some of those positives are from this game
Well, the checking. We gave up one even-strength goal and I think it’s very preventable. Over and above that, they had some chances, they’re going to, they’re number one in the league, but significantly fewer than what we saw last year at this time. If the guys can put it all together, and we’ll help them with that, then it should provide us with some confidence. Obviously our next opponent, we haven’t had a lot of luck against, and haven’t played well against, so maybe that will get us jacked up a little bit.
On the learning experience of defending against a five-man unit offensively, as Colorado has
Yeah, that group of five, when you put Toews and Makar together on the backend and throw them out with the forward line that they were playing with, it’s tough, even on the veteran players, they’re that good. It was a good opportunity for Spence, Moverare, the kids back there, even Durz I still consider. This is what happens and in the playoffs, this happens time and time again. They’re not playing four lines, they’re playing three and they’re coming at you in waves. They’ve got a lot to go through and learn, and our veteran players have to pick it up a little bit while everybody else is out. The whole team has to get better.
On if he is considering splitting up Kopitar and Kempe
You know what, we can crack an egg over here and we can lose one over there, if that makes any sense. I liked Danault’s pair, and I like Arty there, I don’t think anybody can argue that right now. The kids are playing pretty well together, Gabe looks good on the wing, Quinton’s playing with a bit more pace and urgency in his game, Ras is skating the puck out wide. Then, you go to our fourth line and we’ve got a specialty player there, we’ve got Lizzo penalty killing and Grunny playing physical. Those three need to get their game together. They’re mature, they’ve played together for a long time. I do believe they’re a little sluggish right now, we’ll get them some rest, but they need to get their game together.
On Kopitar’s moment of frustration and if that can be a rallying point for the team
I think for Kopi, that’s an individual moment for Kopi right now. He’s had some chances, he hit the crossbar in the shootout, breakaway rolls off his tape, he’s not feeling it right now and he’s individually frustrated. I think there’s greater value in how he deals with the kids all the time, and no one sees that or hears that all the time except for us, and he does a tremendous job of it.

Tonight’s Poll Question:

Part 1 - At what time of the game will the FIRST goal (by either team) be scored?

Part 2 - At what time of the game will the LAST goal (by either team) be scored?

You can take 2 guesses for each part.
Use the min:sec of the ___ period format. You can also choose OT without a specific time or SO (2 points for a correct guess of either of these).
No need to specify a time for OT for a chance at 2 points. If you do choose a specific time for OT, you will get the points based on the time.

+/-2:00 = 1 point, +/- 1:00 = 2 points, +/- :30 = 3 points
a correct guess of OT (without a specified time) or SO will = 2 points

Need to win this one.

Sharks are not a good team. Just stay out of the box and get it done.
 
Thank you, Susan et al!

Tonight's game is a huge mental and emotional test for this team. This contest will be a true measure of their commitment to playing winning hockey down the stretch.

GKG!!!
 
Wonder if Spence is gonna lead all players in TOI, like he did last game. He's got 4 NHL games under his belt now, so he's pretty much a vet.
