Corey Perry on Mighty Ducks throwbacks and return of Bobby Ryan

Raw quotes collected from the Ducks locker room following their 4-1 win over the visiting Ottawa Senators… and the return of Bobby Ryan to Anaheim…

Corey Perry on the Ducks’ throwback jerseys:

“They’re nice. When I was drafted my first year and I played, this is what it was. It’s nice and exciting to come back to your roots.”

On coming out strong in the first ten minutes tonight and against the New York Rangers:

“Especially at home, that’s what you want to do. Them playing last night, we knew we had to come out and we had to get on them early- and we did that. We chased them away from the net early. That’s how we have to play. If we play fast and quick and shoot a lot of pucks, we’re going to do that to teams.”

On creating a reputation for playing strong at home:

“When you go out every game, you want to make sure the other team knows they’re in our building. We need two points every time we’re here. If we start like that every night, we’re going to be successful.”

On how this season will be different than last:

“If we do the same things that we continued to build on last year and we’re continuing to do that again this year, we’re going to be successful. We’re going to play that quick game, we’re going to forecheck teams and get turn over pucks. If we’re doing that and keep building on what we’re doing, and getting better each and every game, then it’s going to be the same thing as last year. Just hopefully go a little bit longer.”

On Hampus Lindholm’s game:

“He’s a smart player. He’s a guy that can skate with the puck. You see it on the power play, he’s holding onto the puck and creating chances. He made a great pass to me and I just had to put it in the open net.”

On playing against Bobby Ryan:

“It happens all the time. There’s different guys that have left here that you became friends with and that you see down the road. You wish them all the best. I said hi to him before the game when I saw him in the hallway. Hopefully he does well and continues to do well.”

On if there was any chirping with Ryan during the game:

“No, nothing.”

On putting the puck in the net more:

“We passed up a few chances the last few games to shoot the puck and I think we did that again tonight. We have to shoot the puck a little bit more. We had 56 shots, but I think we gave up 20 that we didn’t shoot the puck. There are chances where you can shoot the puck a little bit more.”
