We were just hanging on and we were just getting games given to us and we never took advantage of them.

You remember the days in the backyard when it's cold and you just had some fun.

It seemed at times like we weren't really together on the ice. We were always on opposite sides of the ice trying to connect the long pass when the short pass is the one we need to be making. It's something we need to work on. It's something we're conscious of now.

It was one of those things that it happened perfect at the time.

I knew the lane was right there. I was just going to go for it.

It was one of those nights, but that's on us. Those things are our fault.

Going into it we really didn't have a good feeling. We never had anything going and we kind of knew that.

Penalty kill's one of the hearts of this team. And to come out like that, you saw what happened (Saturday) -- they were 3-for-6. That's awful.

Two weekends left and then we've got playoffs. We're bearing down, trying to get something going here and I think we had a good start last weekend.
