Senators locker room quotes from LA

-Coach Paul MacLean on tonight’s game:

“Penalties, penalties, penalties, if you’re going to take penalties in this league, especially consecutive penalties and give teams the opposition five-on-three and four-on-three, it’s pretty reasonable to expect in the National Hockey League that you’re going to get goals scored against you. We got to stop taking penalties, for whatever reason, we can’t just sit there and say the officials don’t like us or anything like that, we have to stop taking penalties. We got to get our feet moving, we got to play harder, and stop putting ourselves and putting our team in a bad spot.”

-MacLean on tying the game in the third:

“I think Andy came in and really shut the door for us in the second and third. We got one back in the second, and in the third we got a couple more to get the game tied up, but at the end of the day, it’s a heck of a point on the road. It might be a little sour the way it ended with the penalties and losing it in overtime, but heck of an effort by the goaltender and the team to come back and get a point in a tough building against a tough team. We’ll take the positive out of it and try to do something about the penalties.”

-MacLean on getting a point on the road:

“I think it’s great anytime you go on the road and get a point. On the road on this league is hard to do, we’re halfway through a six game road trip and we’ve got four points out of it. I think we should be pretty pleased with what we’re doing…”

-Craig Anderson on tonight’s game:

“We found a way to get a point. You’ve got to take some of the positives out of the game and at least give yourself some credit for sticking in there and battling back. Obviously not the finish or the start that we wanted but you know we found a way to get a point and that can be huge for us.”

-Anderson on the Senators’ penalty kill:

“We’ve got to get better at it. That’s the bottom line. Last year we had a great penalty kill and obviously we have many of the same guys that are on that same penalty kill. It’s just a matter of baring down and maybe getting some puck luck on our side.”

-Anderson on the result of tonight’s game:

“No there’s no satisfaction. We can be happy with the point but we can’t be satisfied. There’s no room for being satisfied with playing .500 hockey. You have to go out and you have to try and win every game.”

-Chris Phillips on tonight’s game:

“We showed a lot of composure on not getting down and battling back. Obviously disappointing to not get the win after that but at the same time we’ll take the point after the way we started.”

-Phillips on the Senators’ first period performance:

“You can look at penalties. A couple five on threes and you want to try and kill those off but it’s a tough task. They’ve got some really talented guys over there. It just kind of turned in to a downhill slide getting down.”

-Phillips on improving their penalty kill:

“We’ve got to look at it and see where we can improve and go from there. We need to look at the video and break it down to see where we’re going wrong. If you’re in your right spots and trying to do the right things and be in the right places sometimes you have to tip your hat and not get too down.”

  1. If they had kept their sticks to themselves they wouldn’t have had so many penalties. Not that I’m complaining though lol. GKG!
