POSTGAME QUOTES Colorado 3 vs. Anaheim 0 March 9, 2016 Pepsi Center 37-20-9, 83 Standings Points
Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the loss We got away from the way we play. We gave up more odd-man rushes in a five-minute span than we’ve given up in the last 15 games. You can’t just play up and down against a fast-skating team. We have to play with structure. We have to have guys back and able to defend. They had too many chances. [Gibson] kept us in it for a while, but he can’t do it forever. It’s our job to come out here and play the right way. When you don’t, you can’t sit back and rely on saying, Oh, we’ve won a lot, or it’s due. Those things don’t really enter into my thought process.
On Gibson’s performance He was great. The chances they had compared to the chances we had – maybe the numbers were close – but they had tremendous chances whereas we had Grade B chances.
On Vatanen’s status Right now it’s upper body and day to day. He’ll get re-evaluated tomorrow.
