POSTGAME NOTES Arizona 2 vs. Arizona 1 (SO) Dec. 27, 2014 Gila River Arena 23-8-6, 52 Standings Points
Frederik Andersen On his performance following the Christmas break It’s tough when you don’t play for that long. I didn’t feel very good in the first period, but as the game went on I felt better and better. I was battling a little cold during the Christmas break, but I felt fine after warm ups. It was a good mental break, but even better, physically, to have a little time off.
On Shane Doan’s shootout goal [Doan’s stick blade broke upon release] I saw he was going to shoot it, and his stick breaks. For a split second, I followed his blade and the puck goes the other way. It’s a bad bounce but you can’t do much about it.
On traveling the day of the game It’s a little weird, but you have to be a pro about it and do whatever you have to do to get ready. It’s nothing we haven’t done before.
