MINNESOTA COACH JACQUES LEMAIRE QUOTES


Saturday, January 14, 2006 versus Calgary

Are you disappointed loosing such a big game. 

“It definitely was a  big game for us.  If we want to stay in the group that has a chance to get closer to making the playoffs we have to win some of these games.  We played fine, we could have scored on the power play, and had a little more control on the power play in the third period to take the lead, and we didn’t do that.”

What do you have to do to beat these guys. 

“When you play a team like this, you need a little extra from every player.  We got a great game from Gaborik (Marian) tonight.  Boogaard (Derek) played really good also.  But some other guys could have given just a little more so we would maybe have a better chance of winning.”

About Calgary’s effectiveness at penalty killing. 

“They pressed quite a bit.  Because they press, you have to be moving with the puck.  We had guys standing still, and you just can’t do that…… Usually, we do pretty well on this, but tonight we didn’t.”

Marc Chouinard

Are you disappointed loosing such a big game. 

“Well, it definitely was not the outcome we were looking for, or the third period we were looking for.  They got a good bounce on the third goal, and that sort of took the wind out of our legs.”
