Locker room quotes after Ducks down the visiting Flyers

After the Ducks beat the Flyers 5-3 in Anaheim on Thursday night, here’s what was being said in both locker rooms – including quotes from Ryan Getzlaf, Steve Mason and both coaches…

Ryan Getzlaf on his fight with Steve Downie:

“He said to me, earlier, that I owed him one from the first game of the year when he was in Colorado. He asked me to go and I thought it was an ok time to do it.”

Getzlaf on what was different tonight than two nights ago:

“A lot of things. We didn’t play very good the other night. Like we’ve been able to do most of the season is rebound after a tough game. I thought our guys skated well tonight. We moved the puck better and we got some results.”

Dan Winnik on the bounce-back win:

“We kind of had a stinker against Minnesota. The talk the past couple days was to come out and put forth a good effort, and I think we did that tonight. When we’ve been successful, we’ve been throwing the body around.”

Winnik on his shorthanded goal:

“It felt good. It was a long time coming. You think about it, like when is one going to go in? You have chance after chance or even some tips that you see other guys score on. It weighs on you a bit. It’s nice to get that pressure off me.”

Bruce Boudreau the bounce back win:

“We preach about it a lot, bouncing back after a loss. When I talk about losing streaks following winning streaks, you try to make it a point to not let it snowball. Not that it won’t happen, but that’s what we talk about.”

Boudreau on playing a physical style of game:

“It was a pretty physical game. They were trying to push us around, but I thought we did a pretty good job of standing up for ourselves. We can play that kind of game if people want.”

Steve Mason on the first period:

“It’s difficult. We controlled a lot of the play and they were able to get two deflections in there. For the most part we did a pretty good job.”

Mason on Ducks offense:

“There wasn’t a single clean shot from the point the entire night. They did a great job of getting sticks on it, bodies in front. When you have a team like that, it makes it difficult to stop pucks.”

Matt Read on the shorthanded goal:

“I don’t know. Maybe no support with the guys up high. If they turn the puck over, the weak side isn’t covering or something. I honestly have no clue. It’s something we have to look at on video and see what we have to do to get better. It has cost us a couple games and it is something that when you’re on the power play, you don’t want to be giving up goals. Especially in a tight game like that.”

Craig Berube on the first period:

“Obviously it changed the momentum. I thought that we had really good momentum. It changed it, both ways. Vincent scores there, you’re probably coming into the period with a lead.”

Berube on the game:

“I am definitely pleased with the effort. Guys competed hard. It was a hard-fought game. That’s a very good team over there.”
