It's the same as any game. There's areas you want to improve, there's areas you played well. But we can ask for a little bit more from everyone in here.
We knew the team wasn't scoring. One goal's not going to win you many games, but we thought the last few games the effort was there, and it was just a matter of finishing our chances.
It doesn't matter. Both are good teams.
That's what we pride ourselves on -- being able to play against anyone. It doesn't matter what the other team does, it's what we do. It's something we focus on a lot -- making sure we play the style of game that makes us successful.
Getting that close and not being successful is something you have to live with. It's not something that's fun to live with so I think guys are hungry and that's one of the big things that will hopefully give us that little extra incentive.
I'll give it to charity. I'm not sure which one but I'm sure I'll find one. I just wish I'd have registered my wife for it. I didn't get that done in time.
