Post-Game Quotes

Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel

Commenting on tonight's game…

"You don't want to get down 2-0. We hung in there in the second period. We kept after them and couple of real good skill plays by our top people was the difference."

Commenting on the play of Left Wing Kristian Huselius

"Last time he played this team he had a hat trick and I was hoping he would have that warm fuzzy feeling against that team. He was outstanding… he held onto pucks, had patience and made plays. I'm glad the way he responded. He took control of the situation and was upset about last night and was a big difference in the hockey game."

Commenting on Defenseman John Moore's first game…
"I wanted to start him just to get the nerves out of the way right away. I thought he did a good job. You saw his mobility, you saw his feet and patience. All in all I think he did a good job, but still lots of nerves. I was proud of him, as much as he played."

Blue Jackets Defenseman John Moore

Commenting on his first NHL game…

"It was a lot of fun. The guys were great, they helped me out a lot and to get the win was really huge."

Blue Jackets Left Wing Kristian Huselius

Commenting on his game-winning goal…

"It was a nice play by Umby (R.J. Umberger) and we had a two-on-one and I wanted to make sure we got a shot on net and I shot high and it went in."

Blue Jackets Left Wing R.J. Umberger
Commenting on tonight's game…
"We had a lot of jump on our team. We knew it was a must win game. We didn't feel like we deserved to be down 2-0, so we kept battling. The big difference tonight was our penalty kill. Two nights in a row it's got the job done, especially on the five-on-three (in the second period)."

Edmonton Oilers Head Coach Tom Renney

Commenting on tonight's game…

"Two teams that played last night and they had all kinds of excuses not to show up and we decided to play. But we handed it back to them. We handed it right over. We were a little bit sloppy. I didn't like that at all. The power play killed."
