Post Game Quotes - 10/21 vs. Vancouver

by Blue Jackets Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets

Vancouver Canucks at Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock

Commenting on the game …

“When it’s 26-6 after two periods, shots on goal and your down 2-1, it’s pretty obvious. Our work and our determination gave us the opportunity to go on the power play a lot today and we didn’t take advantage of it.”

“You need your people who are in charge of creating offense, to create it when you work this hard and we have not done that. You can’t keep telling people about working hard and then not have people step up.”

Commenting on on the power play…

“I don’t think we were very good on the power play at all. We were too busy trying to make plays rather than create traffic opportunities and shots. We spent time in the zone but we didn’t penetrate.”

 


Player Quotes


Blue Jackets Left Wing Rick Nash

 

Commenting tonight’s game…

“The power play definitely lost it for us tonight. We weren’t getting pucks to the net. I think 5-on-5 we were all over them. If we get a couple power play goals… the game’s on us.”

 

Commenting on if preparing for Vancouver goaltender Curtis Sanford is any different than preparing to face Roberto Luongo…

“I don’t think so. Every goalie is kind of the same. Luongo is one of the best in the League, but no matter what you got to get a body on the guy, whoever it is.

 


Blue Jackets Goaltender Pascal Leclaire

Commenting the first goal he allowed…

“Maybe a little bit but it still goes through me. That’s a save I have to make. Especially when we play tight games. These are low scoring games and it doesn’t take much. You just make a couple mistakes and that’s what makes the difference for us being only one goal down, pulling the goalie and we have a chance to go to overtime. I don’t think we played a bad game. We put a lot of shots, and we did play a good game but I think coming down 2-0 right off the bat is hard on the guys.”
