Post-Game Quotes

Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel
Commenting on tonight's game…

"I got through every line two times each, and every line went after them and spent some time in their end of the rink. (We) got on the forecheck, got (scoring) opportunities, got zone time. For the first four minutes we were hardly in our end of the rink. That's the style (St. Louis) likes to play and we tried to turn it the other way, and I think we did a good job of coming out of the gate and setting the tone of the game. It was a big win over a divisional opponent. We earned our two points here tonight."

Commenting on the record number of goals…
"It wasn't as big for me as it was for some players who were struggling to score goals. Lines got rewarded for hard work. We've had individuals and lines that were working, getting chances and not getting the rewards from it. Tonight their hard work paid off. We stuck to what we wanted to do (offensively)."

Commenting on tonight’s game…

"It was fun tonight. It was good to finally score more than three goals in a game. I think we played good from the first minute. Everything went in today and I think we deserve it. All four lines were scoring goals today, which is important. I hope we are going to be the same way Friday."


St Louis Head Coach Davis Payne

Commenting on tonight's game…

"We didn't handle pressure, we spent too much time in our own zone. We played a different game that is effective for us as far as supporting the puck, as far as moving the puck with a vertical intention. Columbus had a lot of the space around the puck all night long. They won the races to loose ones, they won the races to support and they won a lot of the battle space areas we pride ourselves on the last little while. If we were able to get a power play goal at 2-zip instead it gets to 3-zip and it was tough to find some improvement in our game."
