SAY WHAT - 'BOYS BEING BOYS'

What was said in the locker-room after tonight's big win

by CalgaryFlames.com Staff @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

GEOFF WARD ON PLAY OF MATTHEW TKACHUK:

"He was good tonight - really good. I thought he was involved, he was physical. I mean, it was a great screen on the powerplay goal. He did an awful lot of good things tonight and you see what kind of an impact he can have on the game and ... not much you can say, he was a beast out there for us tonight. I thought he was really, really involved and I thought he was an influential player in the game for us."

WARD ON TKACHUK/ZACK KASSIAN:

"That's boys being boys. That's two guys competing. That's why we play the game."

 

TKACHUK ON THE BRUHAHA:

"Well, if he doesn't want to get hit, then stay off the tracks. Caught him three times there, so, you think he'd learn after the first one but if he wants to react like that, we'll take the powerplay, we'll take the game-winner and we'll move on to first place."

GAUDREAU ON CHUCKY:

"Chucky was great for us tonight. He was laying the body on him. Ya, I mean that's all I'm going to say about that. He played well, he was physical, he was strong in the offensive zone, smart defensively - he's always a great player for us. So, real good job for him."

ON TEAM PERSEVERING:

"It was unfortunate on that third goal, lost my edge and then it hit off my skate. The boys battled back. Dubes with a big tying goal there on the second and then our powerplay stepped up and found a way to win the game, and our PK had a great kill late in the third there against a really good powerpolay there."

 

CAM TALBOT ON TEAM'S PLAY:

"We had a solid night up and down our lineup. Gio and Brodes did a heckuva job on their top line, then Hanny and Hammer did a great job, as well, so I mean our backend was extremely solid and we had a lot of support from the forwards coming back to try and take away a lot of their odd-man opportunities after that first poerio. So, I thought once we started to do that we established our game and, like I said, we just got so many contributions from everyone in this room."

LINDHOLM ON HIS TWO GOALS:

"I think if you can help the team win scoring goals or anyway else it's always fun to be a part of ... It's always fun to score goals and hopefully I can continue."
