Postgame Quotes: Feb. 27, 2016

The bottom line is that we were in a game that was 2-1 going into the third, we were set up to have success. Pacioretty made a real nice play pushing off Morgan Rielly for the one goal and I felt that was kind of the dagger that did us in right there. Our bench wasn’t very deep tonight. We know anyway, night-to-night, we’re going to have a challenge. I thought with all hands on deck we would have had a better opportunity.

Brendan Leipsic

Early in the game, you want to keep things going forward. You don’t want to do too much east-west, so just trying to get pucks to the net early and lucky to get a rebound there and Hunwick put it in.

P-A Parenteau on leaving the game in the first period

It’s something that happened yesterday morning in the gym right before I went on the ice. It was kind of a soreness in my neck and it was kind of spasms. It came back during the game, like early, and it was just better for me to get off the ice.

Morgan Rielly

I think we played hard at times. We kept ourselves in the game. We had a couple of big kills but when they get two quick ones in the third it can be tough.
