Anaheim Ducks

Ryan Getzlaf
On the game
One or two goals and it's the hockey game. I'm not disappointed with the effort. We made a couple of mistakes that ended up in our net. We have to find ways to score goals. It's a tough league to do it in. We have to find a way here.

On heading out on the road
Maybe that's a good thing, to get on the road and get after it again. This is the grinding part of the [season]. This is when everyone is pushing. Everybody wants points. We have to find ourselves in a fight every night.

Max Jones
On his line generating chances
Seems like our line is playing really well. Kaser [Ondrej Kase] and Steeler [Sam Steel] are easy to play with. I find myself in front of the net a lot with those two. Sometimes the puck bounces one way or another and I find myself either on the right side of it or not. As long as we're getting chances, it'll start turning over for us. That's pretty much what I got on that.

Head Coach Dallas Eakins
On the high-sticking call that led to a goal
It's always frustrating, but those things happen quickly out there. The ref right away was quick to apologize. We just have to take it as that. The key there, not unlike the last game, we've got to get the kill there. We have to own that.

On the upcoming road trip
We just have to play better. This league is extremely tight. Tonight is a great example of that. When you have chances to score, they have to go in the net. When it's a critical time or, like tonight, there's a tough call. That's when you need to stand up be big. Get the kill. That's what we're missing on both sides right now.

Dallas Stars

Ben Bishop
On what has been working for them on this game streak
I think we are just sticking to our game plan. It was no different tonight. We knew that they were going to be a desperate team. I thought we did a good job all three periods. Special teams was huge. It was the difference in the game there. It's tough on a back-to-back, but the guys did a great job for 60 minutes and it is nice to get these two points.

On his shutout tonight
It's nice. They seem to be getting slimmer and slimmer these days in the league, but the guys did a great job with some big blocked shots there, and a couple of opportunities where they [Ducks] had some back-door opportunities and the guys did a great job picking up their guys. It's a team effort and it's nice to have.

Andrew Cogliano
On the victory
We're playing for every point, so good win. We've played some good hockey lately so we wanted to continue that. I thought it was a tough game. It's one of the tougher games we've played recently. There wasn't a lot of room out there.

On the emotions coming back to Anaheim
Yeah, I thought it was tough. Just different being on the other side. I thought it was a little difficult to play sometimes and to really get to my game, but I thought it was good. You do what you gotta do. A lot of emotions coming back and playing through it. Probably the best memories of my career, playing in Anaheim. It was pretty special.

Head Coach Rick Bowness
On the powerplay
They are moving it a lot quicker, that's what they're doing. When you're moving it a lot quicker, you get the penalty killers spread open, they don't have time to recover.

On the winning streak
It's tight, it's nice and it has been fun to win, but you can't take your foot of the pedal in this league. It's too tight, the standings are just too tight and you just can't relax.
