POSTGAME QUOTES Detroit 3 vs. Anaheim 4 Jan. 23, 2016 Joe Louis Arena 21-18-7, 40 Standings Points
Corey Perry On the Red Wings They’re a team that never quits. We had some guys that really stepped up with some big blocks and sacrificing the body. It takes everybody to win in this league. It’s been a crazy couple of days, but we got the win and we’ll get out of here.
On the chemistry with Rakell He’s a great player. He’s got great vision and made two nice passes. I just need to go to the net and make them count. Everybody on different lines are clicking and working together.
Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the game It’s always scary because [the Red Wings] come after you in the third. They’ve tied so many games late in the third, but at the same time, I had confidence in our guys. We weren’t giving them too much. They got a goal, but I didn’t think we gave them much after that. To win in this league, especially on the road in a tough environment, you have to have your best players be your best players.
On the new line combinations So far, it’s working. It’s a really good sign when you’re getting a balanced attack. We hadn’t had that all year. We’re getting goals from different lines. These are all really good signs of a team coming together On Gibson’s performance He was solid. It’s tough when your first shot on goal is a breakaway. Other than that, he held the fort. He made a big save when it was 2-2 on Mike Green. That was a turning point for us.
On the team's composure It shows we’re starting to get some perseverance, push-back and some belief in themselves, and that’s important.
