SAY WHAT: MINUTE MANAGEMENT

A rundown of what was discussed following Thursday's practice

by GEORGE JOHNSON @GJohnsonFlames / CalgaryFlames.com

 

BILL PETERS REFLECTS ON WIN AGAINST JERSEY:

"I thought our D did a real good job moving the puck and our forwards did a good job working hard to reload and be available for them. I thought everybody found a positive way to make a contribution and that was good to see."

 

PETERS ON THE PLAY OF HIS TOP LINE:

"They were dangerous all night long. The one goal, we talked about on video, was the one in transition, the play Andersson made into Mony and then Mony out to Johnny. That's playing fast. That's how we want to play coming down the stretch."

 

Video: "Doc's dialled in"

 

PETERS ON MANAGING MINUTES DOWN THE STRETCH:

"We've gotta continue to win games. You take (Tuesday), take that third period and put it in the first period, you've got a lead and you've got an opportunity to shortened minutes. We're trailing going into the third, that's not an opportunity."

 

DEREK RYAN ON HIS LINE WITH HATHAWAY AND MANGIAPANE:

"I think it's having consistency and also developing chemistry with those guys. It's not something that's born overnight. Playing with Hath on the PK, we've gained some confidence. And Mang has been a great addition. He gets to the right areas of the ice and that helps Hath and I. And he's not afraid to go to the dirty areas. It's been a good fit."

 

Video: "That's the strength of our lineup, that depth"

 

RYAN ON OFFENSIVE AID FOR NO. 1 LINE:

"The success on this team doesn't rely solely on that top line. The depth in the lineup - not just the forwards but the D group and our goalies, as well - is throughout the lineup. When there's lulls, when the top line isn't scoring five goals a game, like they seemed to early in the season, we need guys to step up."
