POSTGAME QUOTES Anaheim 2 vs. Chicago 3 OT Nov. 27, 2015 Honda Center 8-11-5, 21 Standings Points
Ryan Getzlaf On team effort Our guys played hard tonight, and it's a tough loss with how we played. We got a point, and we need to find a way to build off it.
On today’s result It stings. We controlled the play for 58 minutes. To lose it like that...it's a little bit tough.
Andrew Cogliano On the game We should’ve won the game. We were up 2-0 and lost the game. It’s not about Chicago. It’s about playing our game, putting a team away and finishing it. They got a penalty called at the end of the game and they score. They’re a good team. They won the Stanley Cup for a reason. It’s as simple as that. At the end of the day, we were up 2-0 while keeping their top guys off the scoresheet. We lost it at the end.
On the 6-on-4 Someone is going to have an open look with any team. One guy is going to have an open look. They had one and that was it.
Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the game For 58 minutes, we were pretty solid whenever we had to be. That team has a way of never quitting. They came in and found a way. It’s not that it’s them. It’s giving up two goals in the last minute, and an overtime goal again. It’s pretty frustrating.
On scrambling in the final minutes of regulation We had guys who went to the conference final last year that were on the ice. We’ve got to have better composure when we get the puck. We have to go to spots, make plays, and not just throw it at them. That’s what we ended up doing in the last two minutes. We were panicking and throwing it at them. CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS
Duncan Keith On keys to the game I don’t think that’s the way we’d like to draw it up, but we’ll take the win. I thought for the most part they outworked us for most of the game and we just found a way at the end and snuck out with two points.
On the win It feels great. It was kind of a thrilling win. Obviously it was with two or three minutes left. To be able to do that, it’s kind of a good feeling. At the same time I think we know that we could have started better and there were points throughout the game where we could have been better, but sometimes at the end of the day you just want to get those two points.
Patrick Kane On the rivalry with Anaheim Give them credit, they’re a good team. It’s a good rivalry we have going with them. It’s fun when you kind of stick with it the whole game. No one really panics.
On the comeback It’s fun. It’s a great win. To be successful in this league, you’re not going to have a perfect game every time out, especially against a good team, but when you can hold it until the last couple of minutes, keep pressing, never quit, get a couple by the goaltender and finish them off in overtime, everyone is pretty pumped up in here now. Head Coach Joel Quenneville On the game I thought we worked ourselves back in the game. Had a couple of good shifts in the second and had several in the third and finally broke through late with the goalie out. It kind of reminds us of Game Five last year with a better ending.
On the importance of comeback wins in the long run It certainly helps the group. Everybody’s excited, a lot of fun on the bench and when it happens, in the locker room after a game. It’s not a textbook way of trying to win a hockey game, but when you’ve got a goalie out and you’ve got a power play, you like to score early like we did to give ourselves a chance and fortunately we got the second one.
