Head Coach Jacques Martin's Post Game Comments
Thoughts on Horton's goal
He stepped up, kept the puck in, got the puck in deep to Gary who found Nathan. That goal is really a goal scorer's goal. He did not have much room, he had to go upstairs. It was a great shot.
On Gregory Campbell performance
The third goal really shows the determination of a kid like Gregory Campbell. Getting Weiss back into the line up tonight we will have a line of Weiss, Kolnik and Campbell. He got a big goal that was reassurance for us. We were never in trouble when that line was on the ice.
Thoughts on the game
December was a step in the right direction. We were 7-5-1 and it was the first time this year we were over 500. We are 5-1-1 in our last 7 games and were able to move ahead of Tampa Bay.
