MARK GIORDANO ON SECOND-PERIOD MELEE
"It was just an emotional game. A guy pokes our goalie, we're gonna stand up for each other out there. So, it started a little line brawl thing there and I thought we did a good job. I thought everybody involved did a good job of going. I thought Talbs was awesome and it was exciting. It's exciting hockey out there. But we're not happy at all with the way we played tonight."
Video: "We were chasing the game all night"
GIORDANO ON THE LOSS:
"They made us pay for playing a really loose game out there tonight."
CAM TALBOT ON HIS TILT WITH SMITH:
"It was just, again, one of those things - an emotional reaction. I had already been in a couple of scrums and then I saw him standing there so it was, ya, just one of those things. You react to it. I didn't expect to get thrown out of the game for it. I thought it was just more of a five-minute major kind of thing, but unfortunately Ritter had to go back in there and I feel bad that I made that decision and put him in that spot."
TALBOT ON HIS FIRST NHL FIGHT:
"In juniors I fought a player once, but nothing at this level."
Video: "it was a highly emotional game"
BUDDY ROBINSON ON HIS TILT:
"Nothing more to that. I knew he was willing and he's got some fights in the league before and he's been around so I just kind of skated over and we just agreed. I thought it was a good time, we just gave one back to go down by two, so thought it was a good time to give the boys a little spark. Definitely willing to do that for my teammates."
Video: "I'm just going out there and working hard"
GEOFF WARD ON DONNYBROOK:
"It's like throwing a spark on dry tinder. What can you say. At that point,(Cam Talbot's) pissed off. Probably good he was. Then away it goes."
Video: "They were good and we weren't"
