  • "It was quite the roller coaster. We hated our first period. Right from the get go, I didn't come ready to play tonight, I take responsibility for that, I kind of set the tone and we didn't get off to a good start. So that was on me. And I'm glad we can kind of -- I think Donny [Ryan Donato]'s line did a great job in the second period of really bringing us back. TJ [Tyler Johnson] and Rads [Taylor Raddysh], second, third efforts on pucks all the time and they got a couple goals there for us so we cut the lead in half and then we just tried to really wanted to be more physical. We didn't win enough puck battles in the first period we said we were gonna hit everything in a second and third, and I thought we did that ... good couple goals there late, so a lot of determination from us tonight." - Seth Jones on comeback OT win
  • "I think if you look at the last 12, games, 15 games, we've scored a lot more, especially at home. I think when you get confident, you tend to be a little bit more aggressive, you play on your toes, you're not sitting back waiting to see what they're going to do. You're the aggressor, we finished checks and create turnovers gonna get chances. And I think that's the recipe for success and, you know, big comeback win like that, hopefully a bright spot for the future." - Ryan Donato on team's aggressive play leading to more offense
  • "He's a guy that's an energy guy. He doesn't really care what the situation is sometimes going on. He's just gonna go out and give you his all. And that's a good thing ... He's a guy that's ready to go at any moment on the bench and he likes to be a good team guy. So I think it was great for him to get us going on the board. And I think he just continued, he doesn't just get his goal and then go away, he just continued to push all night, and you saw it everywhere on the ice." - Luke Richardson on Ryan Donato.
