by Blue Jackets Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets

Anaheim Ducks at Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets Head Coach Ken Hitchcock

Commenting on the game …
"Tonight we had a lot of good performances, we did a lot of really good stuff. We made some mistakes, but we had guys compete at a really high level. It was really good to see."

"We squeezed pretty much everything out of everyone. I wish we would have had more five-on-five play, because we had four lines going today and it was good to see."

Commenting on some of the penalties …
"I'd have to look at the replays to see if I could clarify it. There were some confusing calls."

Commenting on Zherdev…
"He's a hard guy to play against right now. He's very dynamic, he's doing a lot of good things on the ice. He's a threat every time he's on the ice, especially crossing center ice. He's playing hard and very physical and it's really good to see. It gives you real faith that people can turn it around."

Player Quotes

Columbus Blue Jackets Defenseman Rostislav Klesla

Commenting on drawing 12 penalties on the Ducks…
"I think our forwards did a really good job in their end. Their defenseman couldn't really keep up with them so they had to take penalties and we had a lot of power plays tonight, scored a couple goals but that doesn't change anything."


Columbus Blue Jackets Goaltender Pascal Leclaire

Commenting on the one-goal loss…
"It's bad luck I guess. It's frustrating the last two games but it happens."

Commenting on the penalty shot and play of the special teams…
"That's a key save I wish I make; I didn't do it today but we came back and got a point, I think our (penalty) kill was doing well but had some bad luck."
