Postgame Quotes

by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
TODD MARCHANT:   You know what, I mean, it's not about hate.  It's about going out and playing our game.  It's about going out and 20 guys in our locker room playing our game for 60 minutes.  And I'm sure there's going to be little battles, and it's during the game, but you know what I mean, bottom line is tonight we didn't play the game that we could play.
Q.  (Question off microphone)?
TODD MARCHANT:   I didn't see it.  I was on the ice.  I just saw the puck go across the ice, and I mean, obviously Danny O'Halloran felt it wasn't a goal on the ice.  But, again, that's something we can't control.  They went to Toronto.  They determined it wasn't a goal.  They went upstairs and determined it wasn't a goal and we have to move on and accept it.
Q.  (Question off microphone)?
TODD MARCHANT:   Well, you know, they capitalize on the power play.  Got a power play going against us.  They weren't able to do that in Game 2.  You know, they played their game plan tonight and we didn't.  And I don't know - I don't have a reason for it.  I wish I did.  I would have corrected it about two and a half hours ago.
But bottom line is this game is behind us as it is for them and we have to focus on Game 4.
RYAN GETZLAF:   We knew we weren't going to win this Game 1-0, not with the team they have over there.  They battled the way they wanted to at home and we didn't.  And we just need to get ready for Game 4 now.
Q.  There's a lot of weird calls and whatnot tonight and the bottom line is you blame yourself more than anything?
RYAN GETZLAF:   We can't blame anybody else.  We're the ones out on the ice.  We had some two lapses in things tonight and it cost us.
We didn't score a goal in the zone with four guys on the ice.  I don't know if anybody knows it, but it wasn't exactly our shining moment and we'll take that under our belt and go for Game 4 now.
Q.  What did you think about the one goal, the Alfredsson goal kicking it in?
RYAN GETZLAF:   I mean, that's a tough one to comment on.  From where I was, I agreed with the ref on the ice.  I thought he was in a good position.  Obviously, the league has a lot of other camera angles, and they overturned the call.  We have to live with it.
Q.  You guys responded a big way without Chris Pronger in Game 4 of last series.  What if you guys are in that same scenario on Monday night?
RYAN GETZLAF:   We'll deal with that.
Q.  (Question off microphone)?
RYAN GETZLAF:   They came out, they played hard.  They are forechecking like crazy.  And they gained momentum from each other and built on certain things.  And we kind of sat back and allowed them to do it.  You've got to give them credit.
Q.  (Question about borderline calls)?
RYAN GETZLAF:   I'm not going to complain about the reffing.  We didn't play well tonight and we didn't play well enough to win.  We had a chance to be in a hockey game tonight and we let it slip away. 
Q. What was the difference out there tonight from games one and two for you guys?
FRANCOIS BEAUCHEMIN:   Obviously, they came out really hard.  They played physical and I guess our undiscipline cost us a lot of momentum tonight again, and bottom line, they wanted it more than us.
Q.  What did you think of the offensive line?
FRANCOIS BEAUCHEMIN:   I guess they said that he kicked it after it bounced off his skates.  It happens in playoffs, and those things can make a difference in the series.
Q.  (Question about head injury)?
FRANCOIS BEAUCHEMIN:   I didn't see what happened actually.  I was on the bench and I was looking up on the play when he was still in the zone so I didn't see the hit.  I can't really say anything about it.
Q.  Are you worried that you might (indiscernible)?
FRANCOIS BEAUCHEMIN:   We don't want to think about that right now.  We just want to think about what we did wrong tonight and get better for Monday.
Q.  How much did that overturned goal change your momentum?
FRANCOIS BEAUCHEMIN:   Little details happen, and we want to refocus and we got some bad bounce against us and they played real well.  They came out hard.  They came out physical on us, and bottom line, we want to forget about it and get better on Monday.

SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:   That's things we have to get ready for.  We were not at our best and we can improve for the next game.
Q.  You were able to respond without Chris Pronger the last series.  If you guys are faced in another situation like that...
SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:   I hope not.  I didn't see the hit.  I didn't see it on the ice.  I didn't see a replay of it.  I can't really make a comment on that.
Q.  Little bit of concern you guys lost a little bit of discipline?
SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:   Yeah, for sure.  You can never take anything for granted.  As long as the clock is still ticking, you still have a chance to put ourselves in the box like we did in the third period is not obviously the smart way to go about it.  Definitely mistakes made there.
Q.  Do you give Ottawa credit for battling back?
SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:   Of course, you do.  They won games down in Anaheim, came out and played well.  That's why they're in the Stanley Cup Final.
Q.  (Question off microphone)?
SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:  They got more in the forecheck, and we didn't help ourselves by moving the puck to the right spots, which helped them with the forecheck even more.  So that's something that we have to try and be better at.
Q.  Do you do anything differently at this point?
SCOTT NIEDERMAYER:   There's things we can do as defensemen, how to deal when they do dump the puck in, where do we go with it, how do we try to move it around them.  I think tonight we didn't do a good job of it.
Q.  What do you guys have to do better Monday night to come out and play?
COREY PERRY:   We have to be on the forecheck.  We didn't hit.  We didn't forecheck that for 60 minutes.  We did it in spurts.  And when we did, we got some chances and scored a couple goals off it.  If we come out Monday and play our style of game, I think we'll be okay.
Q.  Did you let the emotions of the game get to you guys at all after that when it was 4-3?
COREY PERRY:   There were a couple times maybe, but it's a hockey game.  You gotta control your emotions.  You can't let the crowd be a factor.  You can't let the other team let it be a factor.  Go out and play your style of game.
Q.  Composure kind of fell apart a little bit?
COREY PERRY:   I don't know if - maybe it fell apart a little bit, but we've got to control that.  We have to do a better job.  We talked about it after the game; we have to do a better job.
