Jonathan Toews on tonight’s game:
“We played well but we didn’t get the result we wanted tonight. We’ll keep improving and move on to the next one. There is no time for getting discouraged and frustrated. We know we can keep pushing it to that next level and that is what it’s going to take against these guys. Clearly they want it badly and are playing really hard. For us I think it’s just a matter of continuing that effort that we started with in the first period.”
Corey Crawford on tonight’s game:
“I thought everyone played pretty well. We played hard today. I think their power play is playing with a lot of confidence right now. Our penalty kill did a great job. That was a close game. We had a good start and came out flying. We had a lot of good chances throughout the game but it was a tough one to take. As a goalie you want to be able to keep it a one-goal game at the end there. They score another one to get up by two and it’s tough to come back when you’re down by two late.”
