by Blue Jackets Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets

Florida Panthers at Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock

Commenting on the game …
"I thought we were really loose in our own end, even in the first period. This is the first time we had a lot of people who didn't bring it. We didn't compete at the level we needed to compete at, for the first time at home in a long time."

Commenting on special teams …
"We've made too many mistakes the last two or three games. It's really hurt us. Penalty killing is a combination of goaltending, commitment and hard play – and we have not gotten it (recently)."

 

Player Quotes

Columbus Blue Jackets Defensemen Adam Foote

Commenting on tonight's game…
"I don't know if we didn't respect them enough, but we didn't come up with a good 60 minutes."

Commenting on the play of the team…
"They got what we gave them; I mean that with no disrespect. We got into trouble and didn't play our way. That's a couple (of points) I think we wish we had back but we have to be ready to play the way we’re supposed to be playing for 60 minutes."

Commenting on playing an Eastern Conference team…
"You have to get mad; you have to create energy; you have to get in their face, that's from top to bottom. We should have approached them like we were playing Detroit tonight."
