Ducks 5, Bruins 2 – Locker Room Quotes

Following the Anaheim Duck’s 5-2 win over the visiting Boston Bruins, here’s what was being said in both locker rooms…

Jonas Hiller on the first period:

“Sometimes it’s easier to get a lot of shots, so you feel right in the game. It definitely felt like I made a couple good saves. You definitely don’t want to give up the first goal. I wasn’t too happy with the last two games. My first periods seemed a little slow, so I wanted to make sure I played well in the first tonight. It worked out pretty well.”

Hiller on the second and third periods:

“No one was happy with the first period. Everybody knew we had to play better. We lost too many battles in the first. We talked about it and said we have to be stronger. We calmed things down.”

Mathieu Perreault on the team scoring three power-play goals:

“We talked about it a lot. We wanted to keep it more simple. The goals were nothing pretty. Just guys going to the net and getting shots. It worked for us tonight.”

Perreault on beating a team like the Boston Bruins:

“It shows we can play with anybody. Even when we play the better teams in the league, we’re able to stand up and win games. It feels like we find ways to win games no matter what.”

Bruce Boudreau on Jonas Hiller’s 12-game winning streak:

“What he showed was he kept us in the game, as he did last game in the first period. He’s 12-0 during this and it’s incredible goaltending when you think of the consistency. Usually, you can play a lot of good games in a row, and then have a clunker, but he hasn’t had a clunker. It’s a real testament to him.”

Boudreau on scoring in a variety of different ways on the power play:

“We didn’t want to change a lot. Even though the numbers aren’t there, we’re doing a lot of good things and getting a lot of good chances. So, just persevere and keep doing what you’re doing. They did, and they finally went in.”

Dougie Hamilton on the game:

“I think we had a really good first period and it was kind of opposite in the second period. Maybe the penalties or something. Those two power-play goals in the second period, they have all the momentum and we’re sitting back.”

Hamilton on his goal:

“I saw them getting tired. I think our three forwards were dominating them down low. Krejci made a really nice pass to Iginla and he brought it to the net. I saw my opportunity to move in and was hoping that it came up to me. Last game I got robbed in the same situation so I tried to take my time a little bit and I am lucky it went in.”

Justin Florek on his assist:

“Fighting is one of those things where you get a little momentum back for us. It was a great job by him. It was a great play by Campbell on the wall and Paille driving the net. It was a great play by Campbell I think and we got a little momentum as a team there. McQuaid started the whole thing so it’s good for him.”

Florek on his play:

“I felt pretty good out there. It was good to get back in the game and get a little momentum for the team. It was a tough one. It is hard to be positive about it but I think we put a pretty good effort out there, just not the finish we wanted.”

Claude Julien on the final score:

“It is unfortunate that the final score doesn’t indicate it but I thought we played a good solid game. In the first period I thought we should have come out with at least a couple goal lead with the quality chances that we had. Unfortunately those power play goals that they got in the second period got them a comfortable lead but we scored a goal late in the second. We get ourselves back in the game. It’s a 3-2 hockey game and you get a power play and then get a call like that against you. It is mind-boggling some times. We could have tied that game. It is not like he pushed it; he is skating backwards. I think it is based on a reputation. It is as simple as that.”

Julien on the Bruins’ penalty kill:

“The first one we didn’t have the right player assignment. Our D should have had that shooter and Marchand should have had the back door so we could have cut that pass off. Second one we got caught maybe cheating a little bit, opened up that lane, and left our D with a 2 on 1. We have nobody but ourselves to blame on those. I thought we didn’t do a very good job there on the PK tonight. It set us back a little bit but again we battled right to the end and again, I wish we would have had a better chance at tying that game up.”
