POSTGAME QUOTES 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Final Game 4 Series tied 2-2
Chicago 5 vs. Anaheim 4 (2OT) May 23, 2015 United Center
Cam Fowler On the loss It was one of those games. We fought back hard to get back in it, but it’s unfortunate for it to end that way. We left it all out on the ice and it’s unfortunate. We still kept our home ice advantage, so we just have to regroup and get ready for Monday.
On rebounding from this loss We’re a resilient group in here. You can’t dwell on any game, especially in the playoffs. You have to roll with the punches. So far, we have a second overtime loss and a third overtime loss. That could be a tough pill to swallow, but you can also use it as motivation to get ready. We’re going back to Anaheim. We’re in a heck of a series now. We just have to continue to prepare and get ready for the next game.
Andrew Cogliano On scoring three goals in 37 seconds We were very resilient being down 3-1. The game could’ve been over in a lot of situations, but we battled back. We were right there. This is a tough series, but we outshot them. They had some decent looks, but the game could’ve gone either way.
On rebounding from the loss We’re right there. I don’t think they overwhelmed us with too much. We had our looks, but they had more power plays and converted at the end of the game to tie it up. But to score three goals when you’re down 3-1 speaks to the team. There is no hanging your heads. It’s a bad feeling, but we have to battle back. Corey Perry On the loss We always talk about highs and lows in the playoffs. We learn and move on. It’s one game. We still have home ice advantage, and we’re a shot away. We had some chances but couldn’t find the back of the net.
On rebounding from the loss We’re going home in front of our crowd. It’s all tied now, but we’re excited. We’re going back, we want to start strong and put this one behind us.
Head Coach Bruce Boudreau On the ability to erase deficits Don’t take your foot off the gas. Keep going. We’ve done that all year. We have a never-give-up type of attitude. Unfortunately, we couldn’t hold the lead.
On the series If you look at all four games, they’ve been all tremendous hockey games. One has to lose and one has to win. It’s usually when one of the teams makes a mistake that a good team capitalizes. That’s what happens. We had our chances to win it, but it didn’t happen. We’ll just regroup. Now it’s a two out of three. Let’s get after it.
On processing this loss Let’s worry about the next game. It happens. We’ll put it behind us. We’re ticked off, but we have a game in two days. If you dwell on it, you’ll dwell on it until you’re down 3-2. You just have to get angry and get after it. We know these are two good teams. We just have to be the one who comes out on top.
Head Coach Joel Quenneville On overtime success I think that our mindset is staying with it, somebody will either make a great play. But then again you don't want to be too in a hurry to make that play because sometimes that can bite you. Being patient. The same approach that's probably gone on every single shift throughout this series. That third period was a little bit haywire compared to what we saw as far as trying to score goals, scoring chances. Pucks were going in at a different rate. Got a little bit more consistent in that overtime.
On resilience I think this series has been played very tight, but there's a lot of pace to it that all of a sudden things could be a little unpredictable. We've had some crazy endings with them in the regular season and past games as well. This series has been played at that pace. Tonight we saw a crazy third period, then got a little bit back to normal. Can't be any more even than what I saw in four games.
