Player Quotes

Columbus Blue Jackets Center Michael Peca

Commenting on tonight's game…
"David (Vyborny) had a great game. The second goal was just like the first. We had taken the game over but a couple missed assignments, a couple of bounces and the momentum shifts the other way. One thing we haven't done particularly well all year is stand in the face of adversity within a game and push back. So that was disappointing."
