Here's a sampling of what the Leafs had to say following a 5-2 win in Vancouver over the Canucks.
I think we've worked real hard on the trip. We could've had better success than we’ve had, but tonight we were rewarded. We scored a few goals and were able to keep it out, had good goaltending and we played real hard. Give the guys a lot of credit.
I think that’s got to be one of our best defensive games of the year. We’ve had some good games this year, but as far as shutting them down, they only had a couple chances and they were fortunate enough to bury on a few. But I thought our guys played one of the best games I’ve seen them play.
On his NHL debut:
It feels amazing. You work this hard all of your life to get to this point, it was a pretty cool experience.
On his first goal:
We were just in on the forecheck and Gards (Jake Gardiner) snapped one on net. For whatever reason it popped up in the air and nobody knew where it was. I just got an eye on it and was lucky to bat it out of the air.
