COACH PETERS ON STOUT DEFENSIVE PLAY
"If you're 200 feet from your net, you're playing defence in the offensive zone. What I liked was the maturity of our group tonight. We didn't open ourselves up and leave ourselves vulnerable for transition. When we were done in the offensive zone, we either ended up with a faceoff or we ended up with a good line change, or we left the next group with something good to work with."
PETERS ON ISLES' THIRD-PERIOD PUSH
"We've been in so many situations here as a group, it was no big deal. It was right back to work. ... There was good composure on the bench. No issue there."
HAMONIC ON TEAM EFFORT
"When you're playing good teams like that, you've gotta show up, and we did right from the start, I thought."
HAMONIC ON SCORING AGAINST FORMER TEAM
"I'd be lying if I didn't say it felt good. I had a lot of good memories over there. I got my start in the league from Charles (Wang), Garth (Snow) and Jack Capuano. So many friends and great memories on Long Island. To be able to put one in tonight, it obviously feels good."
HAMONIC ON TEAM PLAYING AT HIGH LEVEL
"Even in that span where we weren't playing our best - and I'm always one to look on the bright side of things - we were still collecting points. We felt like we were doing some good things, but some of the results weren't there. I think we've done well all season. Win, loss, we reset and re-boot."
CZARNIK ON SCORING GAME-WINNER
"It's great. I thought our line was going the whole night. We had a lot of chances. I think our team was going the whole night. For us to come out on top tonight was a big step for us and we want to close out this homestand with another win."
GAUDREAU ON SWITCHING UP LINES
"We (Gaudreau, Monahan, Lindholm) just couldn't find it; couldn't get it going. We were getting looks, just couldn't find the net. Sometimes when you change the lines up, you get a little spark, a little energy, and that's why sometimes in the middle of games, you switch up the lines. … I thought both lines with a switch played well tonight."
