David Clarkson Postgame:
“That’s a hard-working team. You can’t look at the stats and see where they are and put them in that category because they’re a hard-working team. They work hard every night and they’ve got a lot skill and they’re fast. They’re a fast team.”

Pete DeBoer Postgame:
Obviously, the power play goal gave us a little bit of life and let us get within one going into the third period. That was big. But there were a bunch of different moments that were real important. I think on the bench we never thought we were out of the game. It was a good feeling that there was a lot of hockey left and we could climb back in and that’s what we did.”
