Frederik Andersen On the execution level We had a business-like mindset. We wanted to get back into this series. It was a huge game for us. We came ready to play in the first period, and did some of the things right that we wanted to improve upon from the last two games.
On his save on Shea Weber I think it bounced off the top of my forehead. It hit me square in the forehead. The buckle came off, so I wanted to make sure I got it back on.
Chris Stewart On the team’s resiliency This is a resilient group, and we’ve never doubted our ability. We didn’t make it easy on ourselves, but at the end of the day, it’s a race to four [wins]. It’s 2-1 now.
On keeping their composure At this time of the year, it’s about harnessing your energy and using it for the good. You can’t get caught up in all that stuff after the whistle. You’re just going to hurt yourself and waste energy. We need it at this time of the year.
Rickard Rakell On his tip-in goal [Sami Vatanen] made a great shot-pass for me. All I had to do was put my stick on it. We work on it a lot. I don’t do it all the time, but it was a perfect pass. It was nice to see it go in. It was a big goal.
On the execution level Except for a few penalties, I thought Freddie played a great game. The [penalty killers] had a great game. We want to keep playing like this moving forward. Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the victory They did it in a business-like fashion. We got a couple breaks and put them in. That’s playoff hockey.
On Weber’s slap shot Those things hurt. He’s scored three goals on us this year just on one-timers. When he gets that one-timer, you know he has the hardest shot in the league. I can’t believe any goalie has the courage because I don’t think you can see it when it’s coming.
