John Gibson On Minnesota’s push in the final minute of regulation We knew they were going to have a big push, especially in the third period. I just tried to keep the puck out of our net.
On conversations between whistles late in regulation We were just trying to make plans to get the puck out of the zone, and what happens if it gets pinned in for a long time. Just the little stuff.
On the Wild We knew they were going to come at us the whole game and be really aggressive, especially in the first period. They had a lot of shots, but we just tried to hold our game and chip away as the game went on. We knew it was going to be a low scoring game. I just tried to give up the least as possible, and do whatever it took to get the win.
