SAY WHAT - PLENTY OF POSITIVES

What they were saying in the dressing room after the game against the Blues

by CalgaryFlames.com Staff @NHLFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

BILL PETERS ON COMEBACK:

"It was good. Down 2-0 with about 10 minutes to go, I think we executed real well on the first one, and good for Hammer to get rewarded. I thought Hammer had a solid night and got it tied up and then I thought overtime was cooking along, we turned one over at the blueline and next thing you know we're shorthanded and they made us pay. So, they ended up with two on the powerplay and we didn't have any so that's probably the difference in the game"

 

PETERS ON TAKEAWAYS:


"I thought we had our looks, too. In the second we came down the pipe a couple times and had some good looks. I think you can learn from a game like this. I think there were times when we spent a little more time in the D zone than we wanted when we weren't clean breaking out. You have to be able to break out on your first opportunity against good teams. They wear you out. Once you turn it over and all of a sudden they get a line change and they're fresh and you're tired, they'll wear you out and they did that at times but I thought our guys hung in there."

 

PETERS ON OT WINNER

Off the faceoff it's bouncing on (Hamonic), so that thing was all over the place, and again … I think it's bouncing like crazy on (Lindholm), he's able to whack at it but we weren't able to get it 200 feet." 

 

Video: "We were able to find a way to get back into it."

 

DAVID RITTICH ON THE GAME:

"I mean, we played well. Just a couple of mistakes, you know. That's going to happen."

 

Video: "We played well. Just a couple mistakes."

 

MATTHEW TKACHUK ON THIRD PERIOD:

"I think that in the third period we did a great job of taking the play to them more than we did in the first two. You never want to be down going into the third again, but again we seemed to find ourselves firing a little better and playing in the offensive more and getting more chances, more zone time. I think that comes with them protecting a lead, too, but I thought we did a pretty job of getting that point. When it gets into overtim, I honestly think it's a flip of a coin."

 

Video: "We seemed to find ourselves."

 

TRAVIS HAMONIC ON THE RESULT:

"It's nice to get the point but, obviously, you're playing the Cup champs and you want to win. They know how to play, they know how to win and we were slugging it out with them all game I thought. So, a lot of good things I think to take from it but obviously a little bad taste with the way it finished, but you have to pull some positives from the game." 

 

Video: "I thought it was a really good game."
