Frederik Andersen On the bounce-back performance We wanted to show what kind of character we have. Last night wasn’t our team. We showed that tonight. We came ready to play from the first minute.
On the penalty kill They were going to come hard in the third period. We know all they had were power plays, and we had to be sharp there. We got a little emotional, but we solved it.
Corey Perry On the bounce-back performance Nobody played well last night. That’s all we talked about today. Everybody was going to judge us on our character in this game. We responded well. We came out with a 2-0 lead after one [period], and you can’t ask for much more.
On dealing with emotions in a physical game It’s all about keeping them in check, but at the same time sticking up for one another. I thought we did a good job of that.
On Andersen’s performance He made some big saves at crucial times in the game to keep it close. It’s what he does back there. He’s been rock solid all season. On the chemistry with Rakell He’s a smart player who can find holes. He made some great plays on those goals. When you have confidence, you’re going to get those bounces.
