Atlanta Thrashers vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Preseason - October 2, 2010

Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel
Commenting on the different line combination…

"I wanted to try different players together and Nikita (Filatov) wasn't here last year and I just wanted to try some different things. I also wanted to see (Kristian Huselius) with (Derick) Brassard and (Jakub) Voracek as well. By the time that third period rolled around I had people everywhere."

Commenting on leaving for Sweden...
"We've done so much work to get to this point; it's a relief to get on the plane. It's finally here and it's part of what we have to do, just get there safe."

Commenting on the power play…
“I really liked the fact that we moved the puck around (on our power play). We have to get pucks to the net. But, the power play has gotten better and better and we had success last night in Minnesota, it was a big deal for us. I like a lot of what we're doing."

Blue Jackets Left Wing Nikita Filatov

Commenting on tonight's game…

"I know it was a pretty tough game and we came from behind. I think we played a pretty good game. Training camp is over so now we get to go to Sweden. It was a pretty good win."

Thrashers Head Coach Craig Ramsay

Commenting on tonight's game…

"I thought we played very well, I thought we played with a lot of enthusiasm. We chased them, we pushed them. Our first couple of power plays were pretty good. We scored the first goal and had a lead, but again we gave up a couple in the third and when you have a lead you need to be able to finish it off."
