Here's a sampling of what the Leafs had to say following Thursday's loss in Buffalo.
I didn’t think we were as good (in the first period). I thought they were better than us, we didn’t execute coming out of our own zone. They were on top of us and they were better than we were. You have to give them credit for that. You’ve got to be better at the start of games. If you don’t start on time, you lose. And tonight was exactly that.
We’re not a group that makes excuses. With new guys in – maybe a couple new faces, couple new positions – it comes down to a lot of talk and communication on the ice and after that it’s just execution. We’re not using that as an excuse.
Andrew Campbell on his first game with the Leafs
It was special. I had a lot of friends and family here, so it’ll definitely be a night I remember for the rest of my life. It’s disappointing to not get the two points, but just to wear the blue and white and look down and see a Maple Leaf on your chest. Growing up idolizing that, it was pretty cool.
Tobias Lindberg on his NHL debut
I tried not to think too much and get all tensed up and lose the puck everywhere. I was just trying to have fun and do what I do good. I was very happy with my performance.
