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.”
