SAY WHAT: 'GOOD TO SEE THE GROWTH'
What was said in the dressing room after the gameby CALGARY FLAMES STAFF @NHLFlames / @calgaryflames.com
JOHNNY GAUDREAU ON HOME VICTORY:
"Ya, two big wins here at home and hopefully keep it going in the last three games."
Video: "Two big wins at home."
CAM TALBOT ON IMPACT OF RECENT WIN OVER BOSTON:
"I think you can take a lot from that Boston win. The way we played in that game was probably one of our best games in awhile and whenever you can go into a building like that and beat the best team in the league, you know, it gives confidence to your group and you know that if you play the right way, then the wins are gonna come. So, we just tried to bring that road game home and we've been to establish that in the last couple of games."
Video: "There's no quit in us."
MATTHEW TKACHUK ON TEAM PERSEVERING:
"We were talking about if before the third: it was going to be a playoff-type period, up one goal. Not talking like shut it down in the third, because we still had some chances, but limit their chances, be above them, get pucks out of our zone, have layers so they have to come through a few guys. They had maybe one or two OK chances, one really good one, but other than that, not much. I thought when tested, Talbs was really good."
ON CHECKING THE STANDINGS:
"Normally I check them in the morning ... it's more of a morning thing."
INTERIM COACH GEOFF WARD ON TEAM'S RESILENCE:
"It's good to see the growth we've talked about, and we've talked about it for awhile now. But the fact the guys are responding the way that they are now - I mean, this is the way the hockey is going to be for the rest of the year, you know. You're not going to see a lot of games where you're wire-to-wire out front, it's going to be tense, it's going to be tight, both teams are going to get pushes. That's the nature of the beast right now, so it's great that our guys are getting confident, you know, playing in all those situation and staying on our game and staying on task when things aren't going necessarily the way we want them to go in a particular game."
