POSTGAME QUOTES Toronto 6 vs. Anaheim 5 (OT) March 24, 2016 Air Canada Centre 40-23-10, 90 Standings Points
Ryan Getzlaf On the game We had some guys step up and make some plays. You saw on the goals, we executed properly and we were able to maintain puck control, those kinds of things. You have to against a team like that. They’re going to work. Those kids are playing hard and Mike’s (Babcock) got them playing a pretty good system over there that they’re buying into. You’ve got to be prepared to play. Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the game The first 38 minutes we didn’t compete. It’s simple. They were getting the pucks deep and beating us to the punch. We scored the first power-play goal, but we must have given the puck away six times in the next five minutes. To the team’s credit in the third period, or even at the end of the second, they never quit. Then in the third period I thought we played pretty well for the most part. It’s the first time out penalty killing has failed us all year.
TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS
Tyler Bozak On his return to the lineup I missed a couple of open nets so that didn’t feel good, but it was fun. I really enjoyed playing with those two guys. They work hard and got a lot of chances. Our power play was clicking. It was good. I felt pretty good right off the bat so it was nice. Head Coach Mike Babcock On the game The puck went in the net for both teams, obviously, a lot. I thought we had the game well in hand and they shot it in the net a couple times and I thought they took over at the start of the third period. They did a good job there and had their way with us for a little bit. It was nice to see us respond as well.
