STAPLES Center

Anaheim Ducks

Kevin Bieksa
On the game
Our d-zone was pretty good tonight. We had a little bit too much of it in the second period, but we kept a lot of the shots to the outside. We played good enough to almost get the shutout, but they got one. Losing in the shootout sucks. We all know that.

On the rivalry
This team always brings out the best in us. There is a pretty strong rivalry there. The emotions were pretty high right off the bat. You got everybody going. It was a great game. It was physical. It had a little bit of everything. You could tell we wanted this one. You win it in a shootout or overtime and you feel like a million bucks, and when you lose, you feel like a zero. Right now, we try to take away the positives and head out east and make some noise.

Ryan Miller
On the game
Our intensity was there. We were engaged from the puck drop. Both teams were really committed to playing a hard game.

On the road trip
We need everything we can get. We know what we got coming down the barrel. Effort like tonight will go a long way. It's frustrating to walk out of here without two points, but I thought we fought really hard. It's the kind of game we needed. We'll see if we can keep it going.

Head Coach Randy Carlyle
On the game
I thought our work ethic was strong. I thought our compete level was where it needed to be. These are the types of games that separate men and boys. I thought our hockey club competed as hard as it has competed in any game this year.

On maintaining the same level of intensity and work ethic
The compete level, structure, work ethic, our track and forecheck, all those were positives for our hockey club. Now we have to find a way to maintain that as we play more games on this road trip. We're short-staffed on personnel, but credit to the guys who are here. It's not an easy task to play in situations that maybe they haven't been in.
