Here's a sampling of what the Leafs had to say following a 4-3 regulation loss to the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.
I thought we gave them two gifts, but I thought we did lots of good things. In the end, we worked hard and had the puck a lot, but didn’t score enough to win.
In the first period we kind of beat ourselves in a way. Any time you start like that it’s always tough to get back. I thought we competed well, but just didn’t start the way we wanted to.
Pretty happy with our overall effort. With a depleted lineup, I thought we played pretty hard. I thought the chances and the goals we gave them were our fault. I thought we dominated most of the game, but they found a way to win.
It was too bad to get behind. They got a couple goals – couple of seeing-eye shots. It was too bad. But I thought we did a great job of battling back, especially in the third. I thought all game we played fairly well, but especially in the third I thought we really came at them. Lucky bounce here and we’d still be in OT.
