SAY WHAT - 'JUST AN EMOTIONAL GAME'

What was said in the locker-room after Saturday night's tilt

by TY PILSON @typilson / CalgaryFlames.com

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"
