BOSTON COACH MIKE SULLIVAN QUOTES
Thursday, December 15, 2005 versus Minnesota
Looks like you guys played hard tonight.
“We got the puck to the net. We said all along when we get the puck to the net good things happen. The team we played tonight defends well. They protect the high slot. Our defense did a good job of getting the puck through, not only out of our zone but in their zone as well. You have to play with a confident attitude and not allow them to come at us. We have to play more like that.”
Was it nice to get the breaks tonight?
“It was nice, but I thought we worked hard for them. We put the puck towards the net and went for the rebound. We forced the defense to make decisions in front of the net. I thought all of the guys played well.”
It was a nice win for you guys.
“I thought we came out, worked hard, had a high energy level for all three periods. Our forwards checked well, our goalie had a good game, and I thought we moved the puck up from our own zone well tonight.”
How nice is it to play in Boston?
“This is a dream team to play for. This is a great hockey town. The guys have been great. It’s nice to play with a guy like Brian Leech. He’s always in the right position and he has taught me a lot. Hopefully we can build on this win tonight.”
