Dallas Stars say game in LA was crazy, weird and they let it slip away

Stars at Kings April 2013 MayorsManor Carter
Following the Stars 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings on Sunday, here’s what was being said in the Dallas locker room…

Alex Goligoski on what he liked/disliked about the game: “Work ethic was there as it has been for awhile now, so it was good to see. Obviously points are huge right now. We battle back a little bit to get one point. Kind of let it slip away there, but we just gotta move on. If we win these last three, we feel like we got a pretty good shot here.”

– Goligoski on if the game was chaotic: “Yeah, some weird goals, some points in the game where things got a little crazy. Something you don’t see too often when we play these guys. More of a kind of methodical game than what we saw tonight. So it was a little different in that sense, but it was kind of both ways with weird bounces.”

– Goligoski on what he expects in San Jose: “Yeah, it was a big point. If we don’t get that one maybe things don’t look as good. We just gotta go into San Jose, get two points, and go home.”

Stephane Robidas on the overall game: “It was a tough one to lose, but at least we get a point.”

– Robidas on if he was happy with the effort: “Yeah, I thought we played pretty good. Came back in the game. I mean there’s some crazy stuff that happened out there, but stuff that’s out of our control, you know? We just gotta battle through it. Nothing we can do about that.”

– Robidas on still being in the playoff hunt: “We’re still in there. We got Detroit and Columbus at home, and we got San Jose on the road. So it’s still right there for us.”

Antoine Roussel on what he liked/disliked about the game: “Well, we didn’t get the two points. That’s the thing I didn’t like. The thing I liked was the team commitment. We came back from a two-nothing lead, so that’s good.”

– Roussel on what he expects in San Jose: “I expect to win, nothing else. We have to win, and that’s it.”

– Roussel on if he thought the game was chaotic tonight: “No, really I thought we played a pretty good game. Top line did have good chances. That’s disappointing that you don’t get the two points, but in the same way, we battled hard, and that’s a good point to get.”

– Coach Glen Gulutzan on the team battling hard tonight: “We’ve been battling hard for awhile here. So you know, that point is gonna come in handy for us. I like it. It was tough, hard fought game. I liked our compete level. We still control our destiny with the teams we have left to play.”

– Gulutzan on if the game was chaotic: “I thought they were more involved than they needed to be. At the end of the day we needed to be a little more disciplined, but that’s the game.”

– Gulutzan on if it’s a good sign that the team kept playing hard through the chaos: “Well, yeah it is. We’re not looking for signs at this point. We’re looking for wins and points. We’re a stubborn group and we want to get points out of every game that we play. The way we see it. It’s San Jose in two day.”
