SAY WHAT - 'I THOUGHT EVERYONE DUG IN'

Post-game reaction following the Flames' 2-1 win in Anaheim

CAM TALBOT ON HIS PERFORMANCE

"I was just trying to play my game and make the saves my teammates needed me to make. We knew it was going to be a tight-checking game in this building and, you know, the boys played extremely well in front of me tonight and cleared out anything I left there laying for them."

TALBOT ON THE TEAM BOUNCE BACK

"I thought everyone took accountability from last night and came out played for each other tonight. There was a lot of good things that we did tonight and which we need to do moving forward … I liked our battle level tonight, I liked our compete, our work ethic and our dedication in our own zone to get those pucks out when we needed them."

 

MICHAEL STONE ON HIS NIGHT

"It felt good to contribute - it's been awhile since I've done that. You get in there and get rewarded, it was nice."

STONE ON SHOOTING MORE

"I think I had a little bit of time up at the top, had some room, and wasn't rushed so you get good wood on stuff. When I was hitting it, I felt like I was hitting it pretty hard."

 

MIKAEL BACKLUND ON HIS GOAL

"I think it looked like on the replay, it looked like Gibson didn't really expect the pass. I was going to catch it first and I just changed my mind and shot it first. I'm happy I did. But it was a really nice pass from Chucky … he's such a good player, really good vision."

 

BILL PETERS ON THE BOUNCE BACK

"I thought everyone dug in, I thought we needed a response from the game we had last night and we found a way to do that."

 

PETERS ON STONE

"We needed it for sure. In the division and on the road, we got to clean that record up as we move go along here. Stoney came in and gave us good minutes, obviously was shooting the puck prior to his goal. He had a couple of shots that were heavy and hard to handle and it allows us to get on it and send time in the offensive zone."
