They said it
"We wanted to play better after the little losing streak. We wanted to make our game simple. We knew they were on a back-to-back game, so we took over in the first period and after that we closed the game." -- Ducks forward Max Comtois on Saturday's victory
"Sometimes, embarrassment is good for you. I'm sure everybody went home [on Friday] looking for answers, looked in the mirror and said, 'I've got to be better.' That's what happens in this business. It's not like we play again until next Sunday like football. We play a day-and-a-half later, so we've got to be ready for it." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant on the team's response after losing Friday
