Postgame quotes following Anaheim's 5-4 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks at THE RINKS - Anaheim ICE on Sept. 13, 2014.

Stefan Noesen
On tonight’s game

I thought we played good as a team. In the second period, we hemmed them in the whole time, and our power play was clicking left and right. It felt good to go back out there and play again. Our whole team played pretty well.

On his goal
It’s been a long time coming. It was a great play by Kevin Gagne, who saw me from across the way. I just tried to let it go, and luckily it went in.

On the atmosphere
It was fun. The atmosphere was awesome. I think we have some of the best fans in the league. It’s always fun playing in front of them. It was a great feeling to go back out there and play again. I think all the guys were excited to go out there and show what they got. It was a good first impression.

Rickard Rakell
On the excitement of the game

It was fun. I thought everybody worked hard. Things can get a lot better, but I thought it was fun getting out there and working hard.

On the power play
Ithought we found the open guy a lot of the time. We shot the puck when we needed to, and we passed the puck when players were open. I thought we did a good job of winning puck battles and taking the puck to the net.

On the atmosphere
It was a lot of fun. When it was a tight game, it sure helped us.

Nick Ritchie
On his shootout winner

It was a pretty good game all along. We had two nice goals in the shootout, and I was lucky enough to go and score. It can’t get much better than that.

On tonight’s game
It was a good game. For most of the game, we controlled it and outplayed them. It was pretty good.

On his line with Noesen and Rakell
We showed pretty good chemistry. Noesen and Rakell scored a couple big goals for us. Everyone was playing well. The other lines were chipping in, too. It was good to see.

On the atmosphere
It’ll be nice to play in front of a bigger crowd at Honda Center. Hopefully we can get another win and be 2-0 in these rookie games.
