Ducks vs. Wings: Post-Game 7 Comments from Cam Fowler

Following their 3-1 loss to Detroit on Sunday night, eliminating the Ducks from the playoffs, here’s what defenseman Cam Fowler had to share…

On if he takes experience from the loss moving forward:

“Yeah, I mean anytime you get the chance to play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs it count as experience.  And I mean, I guess that’s what you have to take from it when you lose in the first round.  For me it’s personal experience and something I can build off of.”

On if the series had a turning point:

“I mean, it was a pretty wild series to begin with.  I think three out of their four wins came in overtime.  So that’s about as even as a series as it can get.  Proud of our guys.  We fought all the way, but we gotta give them their credit.  They were the better team tonight, and that’s why they came out on top.”

On if the short-handed goal put the game away:

“I don’t think you can point to any point in the game.  I mean, I think the way that they came out, getting a goal in the first couple minutes.  I think that’s huge in a game like this.  Goals are at a premium in Game 7 games.  So when you can get one a couple minutes early, I think it kind of set the tone for the rest of the game.  But I still think we fought hard, we just came up a little bit short.”

On when he looks back on the series if he’ll look at the games that got away:

“Yeah, I think I said there were a couple games this series that could’ve gone either way, and we’re going to look back at the resiliency that our team showed in being able to come from behind.  The character we showed I think is something to build off of.  But I mean you’re obviously going to think about that.”
