On the message throughout the game We had scoring chances throughout the game. We just told each other we had to stay on top of it and keep going. We were confident we were going to come back. Unfortunately, it didn’t go the whole way. On his game-tying goal Getzy [Ryan Getzlaf] made a great pass through the neutral zone, and I had a lot of time on the left side. A lot of times I’ve gotten that shot blocked, but it was nice to see that one go in.
