On tonight’s game
They came out pretty hard and we couldn’t match it. They capitalized on some of our mistakes and we were playing catch up the whole game. That’s a good team. You can’t make key mistakes against them. It wasn’t our best game, but we never quit. You can see that at the end of the game. We’re going to continue doing that.

On the Lightning
You have to give credit to them. They were playing really well. But at the same time, we weren’t making tape to tape passes, we weren’t clean coming out of the zone, we weren’t getting the puck deeps, and Ben Bishop was able to make plays out of the zone. We were just backchecking playing in the d-zone in the first period. Whenever that happens, it’s not a good recipe for success.

On frustration in tonight’s game
Sometimes you get frustrated and sometimes you get mad. Tempers flare a little bit. We just have to forget about this one and move on. We still have two more games left on this road trip. We just need to keep going from here.
