SAY WHAT: GAUDREAU ON BREAKING OUT

by RYAN DITTRICK @ryandittrick / CalgaryFlames.com

 

JOHNNY GAUDREAU ON CAREER NIGHT:

"Everything was going in for us. We were getting chances, getting looks. Good to get rewarded. I'm proud of our line."

 

GAUDREAU ON BREAKING OUT:

"Sometimes you're fighting the puck; sometimes you're feeling good, getting looks and making plays up and down the ice. Our line was clicking tonight. We had some jump going in there from warmup and we came into the locker-room and knew were going to have a good night."

 

SEAN MONAHAN ON TOP-LINE PRODUCTION:

"It comes down to confidence. When you're playing frustrated and you're not producing and making things happen, it weighs on you a little bit. But when you have a night like that and things are going well, you usually ride with it. We've got to continue that with our next game and keep moving forward."

 

DEREK RYAN ON GAUDREAU'S 'DRY SPELL':

"Is that snake-bit? I guess for a guy that him it is."

 

RYAN ON THIRD-PERIOD COMEBACK:

"You've seen a lot of those in the third period where we've come back and taken over games. That speaks to the character, the confidence, the faith that we have in our ability to play. We just have to play the right way. I felt we were playing that way in certain areas, but a complete, 100% game. But we felt that in the third and played that way."

 

BILL PETERS ON GAUDREAU'S HAT TRICK:

"I don't know what play was the best of the three, but they were all elite."

 

PETERS ON TOP LINE'S 14-POINT NIGHT:

"Your best players have to be your best players. They're primarily guys that we count on each and every night to generate offence and they have to end up on the scoresheet, right? They have to. They were pushing and pressing a little bit, and to have a night like tonight, I think it's going to go a long way."

 

PETERS ON SCORING 15 IN LAST TWO GAMES:

"Good things happen when you funnel pucks to the net. We've been on the other side of it here recently where pucks are bouncing around. It's never a bad idea to get it to the net."
