POSTGAME QUOTES

Hampus Lindholm
On tonight’s game
We wanted to play for [Ryan] Kesler. He played here for a long time. We just wanted to go out there and start the week off right. We did a very good job of that. The whole team is getting stronger. We feel like we’re playing good out there. We just need to keep it up.

On neutralizing the Sedins with defensive partner Francois Beauchemin
We talk a lot out there and try to make it easier for each other. If you play against good guys like the Sedins, you have to have a good gap and be tight on them so they can’t make plays. It’s about being smart out there. We’re getting better and better. There is still room for improvement, but we played pretty good tonight.
